Meetings


Club business, member news, observing reports, and an educational presentation on topics ranging from telescope building to constellations are all part of our monthly club meetings. This is a great opportunity to socialize with other club members and enjoy some stimulating conversation about astronomy with astronomy enthusiasts.

Meetings are held on the third (3rd) Tuesday of every month at 7:00 pm, unless otherwise noted, at the UNT Health Science Center, Research & Education Building, Room 100 (PDF), at 3500 Camp Bowie Boulevard in Fort Worth, Texas. Parking is available in the lot south of the building. Driving directions to the meeting location, can be found here or by clicking the link for the map on the right.
