Thanks for stopping by - we're glad to have you visit.
This website tells a little about the San Angelo Astronomy Association, but the best way to get to know us is to come and hang out with us. Located in San Angelo, Texas, the association was started by Dr. Roy Moon and has been in existence since 1962. (See more history here)
We have monthly meetings and regular star parties where we get to observe all the wonders in the night sky. We have enough telescopes to share, so even if you don't have one, come on out!
We hold our meetings
on the first Monday of every month at the Angelo
State University Planetarium at 7:00 p.m. Our meetings are open to members and to the general
public who are encouraged to attend in order to learn more about our organization
and its functions.
We also hold additional public star parties for special astronomical events. Our members make themselves available to schools and other organizations for public star parties. Star parties are observing sessions where members bring privately and club owned telescopes to a dark remote location ( away from city lights ) and view the night skies.
By joining as a member, you will have access to our Yahoo Group http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/angeloastronomy/, where you can view current and past issues of The San Angelo Astronomer, our monthly newsletter. Also, you can download the Northern Latitude Constellation Guides (over 50 pages) available in the Files section.
In addition to the meetings and star parties, our members enjoy discounts for Sky and Telescope and Astronomy magazines and receive our monthly newsletter San Angelo Astronomer (formerly Starbeams & Heliowinds).
Our members are
also members of the Astronomical League
and receive its publication The Reflector.
They also have access to the club's collection of astronomy publications and books as well as its observing equipment.
