Welcome to the Austin Astronomical Society!

Since 1969, a central Texas astronomy club to help you enjoy the sky. Come check out our monthly meetings, our dark sky site (that will show you much more than the bright lights of the city), our Beginning Astronomy discussions, and more. Click on any of the upcoming events on this page or the Events button above to see what we are doing. To get started in amateur astronomy in general, the Links tab on right end of the navigation bar above has many great websites, with plenty of information for any level of amateur astronomer.
