Welcome to the Colorado School of Mines Astronomy Club!

Our club is dedicated to maintaining and using telescope and imaging equipment. We meet on campus soon after dusk to do observations of stars, planets and the Moon. Some weeks we meet later at night to drive to dark sky locations. Away from the lights of the city, we can see star clusters, galaxies, and nebulae. This club is for people who want to stand outside, sometimes in the cold, to watch the sky. At our meetings we teach about how to view the sky more in depth, naming stars and planets, connecting constellations.

For the Spring 2017 semester we are meeting at least once a week in the evenings on Thursday nights at sunset. Joining this OrgSync page will add you to our mailing list. We usually send out our weekly update on Monday morning when we have a view on the next week's weather.
