Astronomical Society of the Palm Beaches
We are a group of individuals dedicated to the pursuit of observational astronomy and to the education of the general public on astronomy and its related issues, such as “light pollution”. Our monthly meetings are open to the public and include informative presentations on varied topics. Past presentations have included astrophotography, the constellations, deep-sky astronomy, eclipses, telescope making and the use, history and mythology of astronomy, and many others! Meeting are held on the first Wednesday of each month at the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium in West Palm Beach at 7:30 PM.
There are monthly observing sessions for members. In addition we offer day time solar and night sky observing sessions that are open to the public. At observing sessions, members bring and use a wide variety of equipment...from binoculars and small refractors to 20-inch reflectors. Knowledge and experience levels of our membership range from complete novices to individuals who have enjoyed astronomy all their lives, including educators in the field. Our membership consists of men and women of all ages and walks of life.
