Welcome!

The Northern Cross Science Foundation is a non-profit organization registered with the State of Wisconsin. The Foundation exists to promote astronomy and related sciences, and to foster public education in these fields. Our members come from all walks of life. You don’t need a telescope to look at the sky…all you need are your own eyes and a willingness to look up! Please explore this Web site to find out more about the night sky, and how you can observe it live here in Southeastern Wisconsin. And come back often! We’ll be adding to this site on a regular basis.

What are we all about? This video tries to capture what it’s like to attend one of our many free public telescope viewing sessions. The pictures and video were taken by NCSF members at our observatory in Harrington Beach State Park:
