About Us

Promoting amateur astronomy on Tech’s campus and its neighborhood.

We meet every week in the Howey Physics building room L3 and go to the Georgia Tech Observatory (weather permitting). Our other activities include scheduling visits to the Fernbank Planetarium, movies, solar observing, participating in local astronomy camping events, and hosting the Boy Scouts Astronomy Merit Badge Clinic.

Meetings occur weekly on Monday nights at 7:30 pm, Howey Physics L3.

Dues: Typically, dues are $30/semester, which covers pizza at meetings, a trip to Fernbank Planetarium, a trip to Deerlick Astronomy Village, and more! This semester, in preparation for the 2024 Solar Eclipse, dues will be $15 which includes pizza at meetings, a trip to Fernbank Planetarium, and a discount on the new club T-shirt. The Solar Eclipse Trip is $50, however, there is a waitlist. Additional information is in the discord.
