Welcome to the OCC Astronomy Department

Looking for the OCC Planetarium? Please visit the planetarium's website.

Our department offers students the opportunity to gain a deeper appreciation about the night sky, the solar system, stars, galaxies and the Universe. We offer a wide range of general-education and specialized courses as well as an Associate in Science degree in Astronomy. Many of our students go on and transfer to four-year programs in astronomy, astrophysics, or physics, and then continue on to graduate school.

Please explore our site to learn more about our department, the courses we offer, the Astronomy Club, our Astronomy House, and more!
