    Who are we?  North High students that share a common interest in various aspects of astronomy.

    When do we meet?  Usually every other Monday after school.  See the bulletin board on the 2nd floor in the atrium area.

    What do I have to do to join?  Know the secret handshake, password and endure the grueling initiation process........ OR show up to the next meeting.

    What do we do?  Keep informed about current events in space and learn some new things.  Social activities.  Movie nights.  Sporting activities.  Astronomy Outreach programs. eat food, etc.  The sky isn't even close to the limit in astronomy.

    What is this site for?  Just to show off our technology skills.  Oh, yeah.  And how about STAY INFORMED AND INVOLVED.
