When I heard the learn'd astronomer,
When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me,
When I was shown the charts and diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them,
When I sitting heard the astronomer where he lectured with much applause in the lecture-room,
How soon unaccountable I became tired, and sick,
Till rising and gliding out I wander'd off by myself,
In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time,
Look'd up in perfect silence at the stars.
 
Walt Whitman 1865
 
Why do we gaze at the heavens?  For some of us it is the thrill of the hunt for that faint object, for others it is the satisfaction gained by creating that perfect image, some find the most joy in sharing the beauties of the sky with newcomers to the heavens and others just enjoy a few quiet hours under a dark sky.  Whatever your reason for wanting to gaze at the stars, we invite you to join us.
