The ASLC has active observing, education and public outreach programs. We host a public Moongaze each month, offer adult education courses at the local community college and support countless star parties for local schools, scouts and various organizations. In addition, we hold a meeting each month featuring a presentation by one of our members or an invited guest. ASLC members support clinics to help new telescope owners learn how to use their equipment. And for individuals who don’t yet have equipment, we offer telescope making workshops. Many of our amateur members go beyond observing and imaging, and collect scientific data on minor planets and variable stars. The opportunities are as endless as the stars.
Here's a sampling of the activities that our club members regularly conduct or participate in.
