About Us

About Us
is made up of undergraduate students from Columbia and Barnard with a genuine interest in astronomy and who want to engage with other astronomy students, the department here at Columbia and the community at large. We welcome undergrads that are majoring in Astronomy/Astrophysics, other science disciplines, or people who simply have an interest in the subject.

Astro Department Events for Week of April 18, 2011

No colloquia at all this week, so that means nothing but fun events! The good people at Bachannal are playing their annual movie on Low Steps and so as long as the weather is ok we will bring out some telescopes and do some observing, while just meters away people will be watching the scarecrow dance to some Pink Floyd. Our redShift lunch series continues on Friday and as if we couldn't have any other amazing events, our very own Laura Vican is presenting this week's public outreach lecture. Spoiler alert: there will be sound effects.
