The Astronomical League is a student-run organization under the direction of the Department of Physics and Astronomy.

We present weekly public planetarium shows in the Royden G. Derrick Planetarium located in the Eyring Science Center. In addition to weekly shows we host monthly star parties in the mountains east of Provo and other outreach and educational activities.



Membership in the society is open to anyone with an interest in astronomy, stargazing, planetariums, telescopes, or staying up late. For membership information, see our membership page

Awards and Recognition

Clubs and Certification Programs

Each Friday night the club gives free tours of the night sky following the public planetarium shows. Current and prospective members as well as the general public are invited to look through club telescopes and enjoy the stars from the science center's observation deck. In addition, most Friday nights the observatory is also open for free public tours. Club members working the deck that night are encouraged to come early to help set up - this is an excellent time to learn how to setup and operate telescopes.

The club also organizes monthly star parties. For more information.
