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).
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.
