Our Members
We are a group of individuals dedicated to the art and science of astronomy. We strive to further our education and understanding of the universe around us and to hone our skills at photographing it through our telescopes. Our monthly meetings include informative presentations given on a variety of topics related to astronomy. We conduct regular observing sessions at a variety of dark sky locations. The knowledge and experience of our members covers the complete range from novice to scientist. While some of us are just getting started in astronomy, others have been deeply involved in it all of their lives. We have no age restrictions, and our members come from all walks of life. Membership is by invitation only.

Club Meetings
Meetings are held on the last Wednesday of each month in the Executive Conference Room at the 24-Hour Dunkin' Donuts Shop in the Pine Island Ridge Shopping Plaza in Davie Florida. The business portion of the meeting commences at 7:30 PM and lasts for approximately 15 minutes. We then hold a short intermission during which sandwiches, coffee, and donuts are consumed, followed by a 45 minute presentation. The meetings are adjourned and we are out of the building by 9:00 PM.
