The Charlotte Amateur Astronomers Club is actively working to engage the public in the joy of amateur astronomy by providing public outreach events in the Charlotte area. CAAC members have been to schools, civic associations, park areas, and libraries with their telescopes and with their enthusiasm for astronomy to provide opportunities for the public to see and to learn about the sky. School groups, scout groups, and others frequently visit the club observatory to view the sky and learn about astronomy.
