Stargazing is easy, and astronomy is something anyone can do and enjoy. You just have to get started off on the right foot. Starting out wrong can lead to disappointment, frustration, and wasted money. Starting out right can lead to a lifetime of celestial exploration and enjoyment.

Today, the hobby of astronomy - the biggest and most mind-boggling branch of amateur nature study - is attracting more people than ever. The Kalamazoo Astronomical Society is happy to present a five-part lecture series that will help you become a star-hopping skymaster!


The lecture series will again be offered online via the video conferencing service Zoom. Admission is FREE but those interested in attending are asked to register using the form below. Registrants will be provided with the Zoom webinar link, along with comprehensive notes for each installment of the series.

Those participants that attend ALL FIVE parts in their entirety and sign-in as instructed during each lecture will receive a Certificate of Completion. Only then will you be a full-fledged amateur astronomer! Each lecture will be recorded and uploaded to our YouTube channel to view at your leisure. However, you must attend the lectures live to qualify for the certificate.

Please contact us if you have any questions. Clear skies!
