Welcome to the Amateur Astronomy Club at Embry-Riddle! We are a diverse group of students from many majors, who come together on Wednesday nights at 8 PM to learn about the wonders of the night sky. Our activities range from general visual astronomy to the budding astrophotography team's work. The Amateur Astronomy Club (AAC) is also responsible for the Astronomy Open House. This campus-famous event promotes the work of the Astronomy Club and ERAU Department of Physical Sciences by opening the College of Arts and Sciences to the public for three nights per semester. You can find us at these Open Houses running activities, leading scale model solar system tours, and even showing night-sky objects on the COAS roof, alongside the Department of Physical Sciences. In addition to working with public astronomy, the AAC hosts one camping trip each semester. Come for the astronomy, or come for the memories! Open to all club members, this event is always a lot of fun. The camping trips typically last for one weekend, and consist of hiking and exploring the natural beauty of Florida during the day, and exploring the natural beauty of the stars at night. Bring a telescope if you want! Board games and good food are also a staple. Whether you have experience with astronomy, or you're just interested in learning more, we welcome you to our club! Drop by a meeting in COAS 501 on each Wednesday this semester, and see what the club is all about.
