Welcome to the web page for the Pewaukee Astronomy Club. We are a group of volunteers whose purpose is to share our interest in astronomy with each other and the public. We operate the Harken Observatory perched atop the Pewaukee Public Library.

The Harken Astronomical Observatory provides education and brings the wonders of our incredible universe to families of our community in the friendly and casual environment of our new library.

We strive to open the observatory to project images to the viewing room on clear Saturday evenings. Club members will operate the equipment and project images in the library conference room. The public is invited to join us at these events.

    I am a locally Pewaukee resident and was wondering if you feature any kids &/or family focused events. If so, I would love participate with my husband & 9 year old daughter.

      All of our events are intended for the general public. Our event in December is tentatively about what it would be like to live on Mars, and should be directed to kids: one of the presenters is a teenager.

    I’d be interested in taking my Cub Scouts to that event. Can you provide dates and times of the December event?

    Please inform me when the next presentation at the Harken Observatory will be. I am very interested and just only found out about this a few days ago. Thank you very much, Danielle DePas.

      Hi Danielle-

      Thank you for the interest in the Club. The Club gives a free presentation at the Pewaukee Library during the second Saturday of each month. The topic for the next presentation is published on the web site about a week before the presentation, as well as in local newspapers. We encourage you to check the home page of the web site, and hope to see you at the next presentation on April 12 at 7 PM.

    I am from the Pewaukee Junior Women’s Club. I was wondering if you would have dates for any observing events at the library for October or November 2014. If that is too far out, when are your next events and are kids invited? Thanks!

      Hi Chrintine-

      Thank you for your interest in the club.
      Observation times are subject to having clear skies, and thus cannot be predicted far in advance. However, the Club has a presentation or other program every second Saturday of each month. All the topics are posted about a week in advance. Kids are always invited to the Saturday evening programs.
