The official logo of the Forsyth Astronomical Society
Forsyth Astronomical Society was founded in 1937, with six charter members, owning three small telescopes between them. Regular meetings were held, featuring indoor programs and outdoor observing sessions.


Over the years, club members have built several instruments, and the club has acquired other telescopes to form a pool of instruments. Through the years, FAS has continued to provide programs and observing sessions to the members. In addition, the club has sponsored numerous public observing sessions, often tied to special astronomical events.
