The Skywatchers Club is for people interested in astronomy as a hobby. We have regularly scheduled observing sessions.

Club Location:

The Skywatchers NASA Observatory, which is the location of some of the club’s activities, is on the left side of the road a short distance after turning right onto Hunsaker Loop at the T-junction at the end of Doolittle Road.

Club Meetings:

The club usually has its regular meeting at the Poquoson Library, 500 City Hall Avenue. Non-members are welcome to attend.

What to Bring:

The club has several telescopes. Most of the club members own and use one or more telescopes and/or binoculars, which they bring to observing sessions.

Cost:

Membership dues are $20.00 per year. Also offered for an additional charge is an optional subscription to Sky and Telescope magazine at the (discounted) club rate. An associate membership in the club, which does not require any dues payment, is available to anyone who is a temporary LaRC employee.
