Eugene Astronomical Society
From AstronomyOutreach network
Eugene Astronomical Society is a group of amateur astronomers dedicated to observing the sky and learning about the Universe, and sharing that understanding and appreciation of astronomy with students and the general public.
The Eugene Astronomical Society has been doing astronomy education and public outreach for many years. What sets us apart is our commitment to sharing the EYEPIECE with the public. We do "Star Parties!" We have special filters for telescopes for safe viewing of our Sun in action. We are happy to partner with community groups to put our experience in astronomy, observing, telescope technology, education and outreach to work for your project. Member interests vary. Solar observing, lunar observing, technology, deep sky objects, astrophotography, and slide presentations for groups represent a partial list.
The Eugene Astronomical Society meets once every month in the EWEB building at 4th Avenue and Coburg Road. Our meeting dates are currently a bit erratic, so check our calendar for exact dates.
Meeting time is 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM. We have socializing at 6:45 PM for those arriving early. Meetings include programs on topics of interest to club members. Members and guest speakers alike participate in the programs. Visitors and guests are welcome! The club only asks for a $1 contribution.
