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 meeting location is the GSC Technology Center in Germantown, WI.
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.
Next NCSF Meeting
The May meeting will be held on May 9th — a week later than our normal pattern. Please make a note of it.
Thursday, May 9 at 7:00pm
Astronomy 101: Impact Craters
One of the most dramatic features seen on the moon are the craters. On this dry and lifeless world they tend to stand out from the fa- miliar mountains and valleys. The 101 class will explore the cause of the majority of craters and look at the features all craters display.
Constellation Of The Month: Hydra
Main Program: Astronomical Clock Of Prague
Member Joyce Jentges will take a look at the history and features that make this clock unique.
