Local Star Gazers Start Astronomy Club in Lake County Florida

We see it on every astronomy site we go to "Join your local astronomy club to get involved in star parties and astronomy in your area." I think "My area, what astronomy club?" Last year I drove almost two hours to Alachua County Florida to enjoy a star party the Alachua Astronomy Club had put together. I was not disappointed. As soon as I got out of my car my eyes were fixed upward where tears of joy overwhelmed me as I gazed upon billions of stars I could never see where I live. Telescopes were lined up with lines of people waiting to get a glimpse of the cosmos. As I listened to conversations around me I felt as if every thought in my head got out and became the people around me. Every conversation was filled with deep questions about the universe.
