Westminster Astronomical Society serves as the Astronomical Resource for Carroll County, Maryland. We have public star parties all around Carroll and the surrounding counties as well as other community service work to further educate the citizens of Carroll County about the great overhead nightly resource, our Milky Way. Astronomy is looking up!
