Caltech Amateur Astronomy Club Announcements

Mars is making its closest approach to Earth this week and we are pointing our telescopes at it! Jupiter and Saturn are also up in the evening sky, making this the perfect time for a planets tour. Join us on Cahill Rooftop this Wednesday (Aug 1) starting 8PM to take a look at our celestial neighbors.

Did you know there is a vault of astronomical telescopes, mounts, and cameras on campus that you can check out to use? Did you know you can take photographs of a few astronomical objects right here from the heavily light polluted Pasadena?
