Need some space?
At the CU Astronomy Club, we come together to discuss and explore everything which excites us about the Universe. Join us every Friday from 4 to 6 PM and meet like-minded people through Space Safaris, guest speakers, and dark sky trips as we learn about the mysteries of stars, galaxies, nebulae, and more. We offer weekly sessions at Fiske Planetarium and a unique chance to get involved with our Media, Events, and Research committees. Everyone is welcome, and no knowledge of astronomy is necessary!
Keep looking up!
The CUAC Research Committee is a great place to get started on undergraduate research in astronomy. With telescope access at the Sommers-Bausch Observatory and a group to help you write your project proposals and conduct research, we can help you with any project, from spectrographic studies of stars to participating in amateur astronomy competitions!
The CUAC Events Committee is all about involvement. We engage the general public by setting up the club telescope on Farrand Field and introducing people to people to Jupiter and its Galilean moons, Saturn and its magnificent rings, and so much more.
We’d love to have you come out with us, but if you don’t have time, that’s fine too! You can still help us plan lessons and events during our brainstorming sessions.
The CUAC Media Committee is responsible for getting the word out about the Astronomy Club, and for representing the Club to the general public from running the Club’s social media to creating all of the Club’s promotional material: posters, flyers, t-shirts, videos, and more. We are great place to gain experience with digital and physical design skills! Come check us out at the involvement fair!
