Astronomers of Humboldt
History of AOH
The club was founded on January 6, 1957 and was incorporated on February 9, 1959. The Humboldt State University Fickle Hill Observatory was originally constructed by members of the club and later donated to the University in the late 60's. In the late 80's, the club also helped build the two observatories at College of the Redwoods and Kneeland School. Club members and their equipment are available as a public service for educational and charitable groups, youth summer camps, and private events....more
Monthly meetings with informative presentations on a wide variety of subjects and interests are held.
The club holds several meetings a year where the public is invited to use our equipment. These free viewings have been very well attended and have taken place at Kneeland, on Horse Mountain, at Benbow, and in Old Town Eureka.
