Klub Astronomiczny Almukantarat

About us

Our goal is popularization of astronomy, mainly among secondary school students from all around Poland.

Every year we organize camps and seminars for young people. During these meetings they participate in astronomy, physics, mathematics and IT lectures, given by professional scientists as well as by students. We also encourage our participants to try their own skills in sharing knowledge - during each meeting young people present prepared essays.

Whenever it is possible we do observations using our telescopes. We also teach astrophotography and processing astrophotos. Between regular meetings, students use our telescopes for their own projects, chosen in our internal contest.

Moreover, we maintain the oldest Polish astronomy portal - http://astronet.pl/ For 15 years we regularly publish articles concerning astronomy and astronautics.
