Astronomy Night

  • Needs a date

  • Needs a location

  • Get together with SCAS or FIU's Astronomy Club to attend star parties as a group. Always fun and always has free snacks. It would be awesome to spread ourselves and reach new people as well as gain more insight in astronomy, and the physics behind it. Stargazing is always relaxing.

    Well, typically we need to aim for a weekend (Friday/Saturday) and I have a few telescopes we can use (3 really nice ones). That is if we just want to have our own outside of SCAS or FIU. Since weather is a factor, we would remind everyone that dates/times are tentative and more importantly NOT TO BE DISCOURAGED by some clouds... They tend to move fast and only really matter if someone is doing imaging.

    If we go with the FIU group then we have to wait until Dr. Webb, Astronomer has his Star Parties:

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
