The SAAA has created partnerships with Fort Mckavett State Historical Site, near Menard, Garner State Park, Hill Country State Natural Area, Guadalupe River State Park, Blanco State Park, and Palmetto State Park, where we hold many private and public observing events and star parties.
Sharing our knowledge of the cosmos has always been the core principle of the San Antonio Astronomical Association. Many of our members are avid astronomers and are very enthusiastic about the hobby. Each year we hold several public observing sessions to help you learn more. Please make plans to attend. See our public viewing events schedule below for dates.
