About Monthly Meetings

Regular meetings open to everyone. Note that we have recently changed meeting rooms! They are held at Saint Mary's University in Room AT101 (Atrium Building). Meetings are held monthly (except July and August) beginning at 8:00 PM, normally on the third Friday.

A typical meeting consists of one or more feature talks. The main talks cover a variety of topics ranging from astronomical stamps to the latest advances in the space sciences. Shorter talks also cover a variety of topics such as: "what's up in the current sky", the latest astrophotographs by club members, or the unveiling of a new telescope.

Observing Night at Saint Croix Observatory

Members may be found observing at the Saint Croix Observatory on almost every clear, dark night. Once a month, we encourage members and their guests to congregate at SCO, at which time new members are particularly welcome. Upcoming Observing Nights are:
