Thanks for stopping by - we're glad to have you visit.

This website tells a little about the San Angelo Astronomy Association, but the best way to get to know us is to come and hang out with us. Located in San Angelo, Texas, the association was started by Dr. Roy Moon and has been in existence since 1962. (See more history here)

We have regular meetings and star parties where we get to observe all the wonders in the night sky. We have enough telescopes to share, so even if you don't have one, come on out!

We have been a member of the
NASA Night Sky Network
since February 2004. NSN


In the past, w e held our meetings on the first Monday of every month at the Angelo State University Planetarium, but since the corona virus pandemic started, we do not have regular indoor meetings. Our meetings are open to members and to the general public who are encouraged to attend in order to learn more about our organization and its functions.
We also hold additional public star parties for special astronomical events. Our members make themselves available to schools and other organizations for public star parties. Star parties are observing sessions where members bring privately and club owned telescopes to a dark remote location ( away from city lights ) and view the night skies.

In addition to the meetings and star parties, our members enjoy discounts for Sky and Telescope and Astronomy magazines and receive our monthly newsletter San Angelo Astronomer (formerly Starbeams & Heliowinds).
