Join an Astronomy club!
We believe there’s no better way to begin exploring the night sky than joining local astronomers under the stars for some proper viewing. You can learn a lot about telescopes and the universe, maybe even borrow a telescope for just a few dollars a year. Astronomy Club family memberships are usually less than $40 and can provide a friendly and engaging start to your journey into space.
Here are a few links to help you get started with telescopes and astronomy.
