Welcome to the

Goddard Astronomy Club

The Goddard Astronomy Club is an employee organization at Goddard Space Flight Center, in Greenbelt, Maryland. It provides a focal point for amateur astronomers in the GSFC community -- an amateur astronomer being someone who loves the sky, whether or not they get paid for it!
