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 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 July meeting will be held on August 8th — a week later than our normal pattern. Please make a note of it.

Thursday, August 8 at 7:00pm

Astronomy 101: Jupiter & Saturn Dominate The Evening Sky

Constellation Of The Month: Bootes

Main Program: “Come and hear about how Ryan Wandsnider, a club member’s son, had a high school experience that was out of the world!”

Each year Massachusetts’s Institute of Technology (MIT) sponsors a robotics programming competition called Zero Robotics. High school students from around the world participate in a virtual competition to earn a chance to test their code on-board the International Space Station (ISS). This past January, Cedarburg High School, partnering with students from two other high schools and forming the coding team Naughty Dark Spaghetti went on to not only compete at the finals, but take first place, becoming the 2018 World Champions!
