Visitor Night at the Observatory
Saturday, June 21, 2014
8 - 10 pm


We meet usually every two weeks on Friday nights at the UCI Observatory to explore the night sky with telescopes, learn about planets, stars, blackholes, galaxies and the Universe. Members of the club are from all majors, but all share an interest and awe in the beauty of the Universe. While the new UCI Observatory is under construction, we will be meeting in Aldrich Park with our portable telescopes near the School of Physical Sciences. On rainy or cloudy nights, we may meet instead in the Astrophysics Conference Room (FRH Room 2139). Please email the Email & Web Master to join, and you'll receive email list notices about upcoming meetings.  Feel free to contact any of the current officers for more information. Check out the Astronomy Club at UCI on Facebook, too.
