Upcoming Events

The NCSF has regular monthly meetings, where the membership can get together and discuss all things astronomical. We also feature guest speakers and many of these events, and the public is welcome to attend. Our meetings are held on the first Thursday of every month. Our normal meeting location is the GSC Technology Center in Germantown, WI. but the COVID-19 pandemic has caused us to move our meetings to an online format until further notice.

Our public viewing nights are specifically designed to enable guests to look through telescopes. Everyone is welcome! We hold events in various locations – check the schedule below, and then click on a location to get a map and directions. 

Because the sky has to be clear and dark in order to be able to observe, please take note of the sky conditions before you leave. If it is completely overcast, the event will be cancelled automatically. If it’s partly cloudy or better, we will still hold the event, and make due with what nature throws at us.


NOTE: All meetings are online only until further notice. Members will get meeting links emailed to them a day ahead of time; visitors may contact us to inquire further.

Thursday, March 3 at 7:30pm

Main Program: Charles Messier & His List (Jeff Setzer presenting)
