The Astronomy Club extends beyond the classroom to include evening Star Parties, field trips, and educational programming for students of all ages, as well as the general public. Throughout the school year, we gather at Sandy Neck Beach and in the Cobb Astro Park to investigate the nighttime sky. It is here that we observe the constellations, planets, moons, nebulae, globular clusters, and galaxies. Telescopes, binoculars, lasers, and other telescopic equipment make these star-gazing sessions memorable and meaningful. Astronomy provides an opportunity for students to “connect” with others, while wondering about their place in the universe.
