The Santa Cruz Astronomy Club serves all communities in Santa Cruz County, California and neighboring areas. Our emphasis is telescope observing, family participation, and public enjoyment of the wonders of the starry night. Check the events or calendar for our schedule...
Various of our club members volunteer to provide a viewing experience to the public. We may randomly do sidewalk astronomy around the area, as well as occasional school and camp groups.
If you're thinking of coming to one of our viewing events, its always a good idea to check the club's email list for last minute updates, you can view the most recent posts on the list archives
