Astro-Hour Meeting


We meet every Friday during the semester from 1:30 to 2:30 in Flarsheim Hall room 256 (a.k.a. The departmental conference room.)

Astro-Hour is a student led organization that is dedicated to the enjoyment of the study of the universe on the largest and the smallest scales. This active group is open to any UMKC student that wants to have some fun and learn about the fascinating universe that we live in. Every meeting typically has 10-15 attendees and is organized around a student led discussion about recent discoveries, instrumentation advances, or unresolved problems in the fields of astronomy, astrophysics, and cosmology. If you participate, you will get to learn about these fascinating topics in a venue that is friendly to discussion at every level. As a bonus, the Astro-Hour group has strong ties with the Astronomical Society of Kansas City and they frequently make arrangements to coordinate outings and activities.
