We meet usually every two weeks on Thursday nights in MSTB
to explore the night sky with portable telescopes, learn about planets, stars,
blackholes, galaxies and the Universe. We also enjoy camping a few times per year
in order to star-gaze in a truly dark sky. Members of the club are from
all majors, but all share an interest and awe in the beauty of the Universe.
Feel free to contact
any of the current officers for more information. Please join our Facebook group called
The Astronomy Club at UCI to receive updates on our
meetings and events.
