With the elections of officers in March 2010 we enter our 11th year as an established astronomy club. The last eleven years have been a torrent of activity. Over 16,000 people have been to one of our programs or those we have participated in. None of this would have be possible without the efforts of so many energetic and dedicated members.
We schedule several public programs throughout the year as well as many private events for clubs and organizations. Our annual membership over the past few years has stayed at about 30.
Stonebelt Stargazers is incorporated in the state of Indiana
A 501C not for profit organization.
Stonebelt Stargazers is a member society of the Astronomical League.
We have built good working relationships with both Spring Mill State Park and the Wonderlab in Bloomington. We continue public outreach from these locations with several scheduled events for 2010.
In 2001 won a national award for our Astronomy Day program.
We have received grants from the Lawrence County Community Foundation for the purchase of equipment and material used in our programs and presentations.
