Freeside Stargazers

This is a casual amateur astronomy meetup started up by Rachel Peterson and Greg Cook. Dust off your telescope and come out for an astronomically fun Friday night.

We will meet every third Friday at 7:30pm at Freeside to view some of the latest cosmic images on the big screen and talk about current missions and events. Then we will head out to a predetermined location to set up our telescopes and see what’s going on out there. Feel free to bring a blanket, snacks and beverages. No worries if you don’t have a telescope and stuff… we can all share.

On September 20th, we plan to meet at Freeside at 7:30pm for pizza and discussion on current events. Then, at 9pm, we're heading off to the Fernbank to use the big telescope if it's not raining...

Check out Stargazers on Freeside's wiki to join our mailing list. And check out our Stargazer Doc to see what we talk about.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
