ASKC General Meetings are held at the UMKC Volker Campus in Royall Hall, Room 111, on the fourth Saturday of each month — except September and December, when we hold our members-only picnic and holiday party.
The night begins with Astro 101, a small-classroom educational series on foundational astronomy topics, followed by a meet and greet with light refreshments served.
