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!
