DCCC’s Astronomy Club is starting soon. Meetings will be held in the STEM building in Room 4401. Times are to be determined. 

“Astronomy is the study of celestial objects and phenomena. It is the all-encompassing term that studies everything beyond Earth’s atmosphere. It applies the concepts from physics, biology, and geology to explain their origin and evolution.”

There are four sub-divisions: ASTROPHYSICS: Applying the laws of physics in space; ASTROMETRY: Mapping celestial bodies; ASTROGEOLOGY: Examining rocks, terrain, and material in space; and ASTROBIOLOGY: Searching for life outside Earth.

Members of the Astronomy Club can gaze at the stars and learn about astrology. Members will attend “star parties” where they use telescopes on the rooftop observation deck.

Professor Barr, faculty advisor, said, “Explore the Moon and beyond in our family-friendly science and take part in astronomy challenges.”
