Beginners Astronomy Lesson

Join us as we learn about the stars in the sky!

From the website:

Interested in astronomy, telescopes, or observing?  Join us at our November 2013 Beginner Meeting at 7:00 p.m. at the Weldon Spring Center on Nov. 7th.  Bring your telescope for help with set up and alignment.  Do you have a telescope but don't know what to view?  Bring your questions and we'll get you the answers. We plan to have several things going on that night.  We'll have a few telescopes present to  look at objects on the Astronomical League's Urban Skies List.  With the holidays on the horizon, we'll also have a presentation on "What to Look for When Buying a Telescope for the Kids or Family." 

Detailed Directions to the can be found at 

Hope to see you there!

    Showed up but the doors were locked and couldn't get in. Ended up leaving. Maybe next time.

      Sorry to hear that. The side door was open. We might do it again in a couple of months if there is interest

    Ugh, I am so upset. My babysitter flaked on me. So I will not be there.

    I've been wanting to do this for awhile now. I'm bringing my daughter too and she's super stoked about it.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
