Purdue Astronomy Club
NUMBER OF MEMBERS
At Purdue Astronomy Club, we welcome all students from Purdue University, West Lafayette, hobbyists and beginners alike, to explore the fun and challenging field of astronomy. As an active student-run organization, we operate under 3 general motivations:
1) To promote interest in the field of astronomy among its members through meaningful discussion of past and current events, and prospective advances in our knowledge of the field; to acknowledge its relevance in society through appreciation of astronomy as both an art and a science.
2) To develop basic technical skills relevant to amateur astronomy, such as astrophotography, spectroscopy, image processing etc.
3) To actively conduct public outreach by hosting events such as public talks, star parties etc.
