This group was created with the purpose of helping people meet others with an interest in Astronomy in the Chicagoland area. After not finding a similar group nearby I thought I'd make a new one and see if there is any interest. I'm hoping the group will help others connect to people who share an interest in astronomy, whether they are experienced or new to the hobby. I will try to set up some meetups, but this group is intended to be an open, collaborative effort, so if you have any ideas or suggestions, feel free to post them! Thanks!
