The night sky has always provided endless fascination for both professional and casual observers. A sense of wonder comes from viewing the universe in all its splendor, while we contemplate the grandness of nature and the apparent uniqueness of our place in it. This is why Astronomy is one of the oldest sciences. Today, we are still discovering more about our mysterious universe. The purpose of the Astronomy Club is to inspire and inform those with a general interest in Astronomy, and to nurture new majors in the field.
