More About Hcastro

Are we human because we gaze at the stars, or do we gaze at the stars because we are human? Do the stars gaze back?

The Above quote by Neil Gaiman outlines the purpose of HCAstro: To Stargaze and wonder about the universe. The Hwa Chong Astronomy Club was first established in December 1986 by Chau Mak Ying, our club’s first chair. When the club was established, it comprised a few members who had great interest in Astronomy. Since its nascence, the society has been increasing in strength over subsequent years. The club has been organising events to educate students as well as the public on Astronomy. Events such as Perseids Watch 2007 and HCI- RJC Astrigue Challenge 2008 were pivotal in educating the masses on Astronomy and enabling our club to grow in strength. In 2008, the club was conferred the Most Innovative CCA Award by the school. Further on, the club has since hosted major events for HCI such as 2016 eclipse event and Night Under The Stars every year (NUTS).
