Astronomy Club

 

TQG’s Astronomy Club is provided for people of all ages. Each meeting features a journey through the solar system in our StarDome Planetarium, an enlightening talk about an aspect of stargazing, children’s activities, a competition, and of course — weather permitting — a chance for some actual stargazing with our telescopes, with experts on-hand with advice.
