Want to know more about outer space and the Universe? There are many opportunities available locally. The Insperity Observatory, located in Humble, is a great place to start. We are open on the first Friday each month from sunset to 10 p.m. For more information go to our website: humbleisd.net/observatory.

Your local astronomy club is the North Houston Astronomy Club. It meets on the fourth Friday each month at Lone Star College-Kingwood. There is a novice session at 6:30 p.m. followed by the general meeting at 7:30 p.m. Information and directions are available on their website: astronomyclub.org

Lone Star College also offers introductory astronomy courses at many of their campuses for people who are looking for something a bit more formal and structured. There are two: Solar System and Stars and Galaxies. For more information and to register for these courses, go to their website: lonestar.edu.edu
