If you are interested in stargazing, you are in the right place.

Arizona has some of the best night skies in all of America. 

This is why...
Upcoming Club Meeting s
July 6 and August 3 | 6:30 - 9:30 p.m.
Join us to cover club business and share learning; Tom Curry and Dane Henderson present some cool tidbits this month! Weather permitting, the meeting will be followed by time for stargazing. Bring your scope or spend time with our optical deep space imaging system. 

Pizza will be provided, but please feel free to bring other snacks to share!

We'd like members to share short learning presentations with the group. 

Looking for 15 minutes on any topic of interest and 10 minutes demonstrating ways to communicate astronomy to the public!
