Astronomy Club

Welcome to the Astronomy Club at Madras High School, a unique and exciting opportunity for students passionate about the mysteries of the cosmos! Our club is proud to be a part of UC Boulder's RECON 2.0 Mission, an ambitious project that delves into the exploration of Kuiper Belt Objects (KBOs) using the fascinating process of occultation. This involvement offers our members a rare chance to engage with cutting-edge astronomical research and contribute to real-world space exploration efforts. 

At the MHS Astronomy Club, we're not just about high-level research; we're also deeply committed to the foundational aspects of astronomy. Whether you're a beginner or an enthusiast, our club provides an inclusive environment for learning the basics of astronomy. From understanding celestial phenomena to navigating the night sky, we cover it all. Moreover, for those interested in capturing the beauty of the universe, our club also focuses on astrophotography. This aspect of our club allows members to learn and practice the art of photographing celestial events, planets, and distant galaxies, combining scientific exploration with artistic expression.

Join us at the MHS Astronomy Club, where the wonders of the universe are at your fingertips, and the sky is not the limit but just the beginning! 🌌🔭✨
