The Colorado Springs Astronomical Society is a group of amateur astronomers with a passion for the night sky. We are over 100 members strong. We are a non-profit group dedicated to the enjoyment and teaching of the nighttime sky. Our club is a member society of the Astronomical League and the International Dark Sky Association. We hold monthly meetings which are open to members and non-members alike. Our club is two-fold in nature. One side being an organization that brings together those that share the same passions and the other side being Outreach.
Outreach is our way of sharing our knowledge of science and astronomy with the public. We host monthly public star parties as well as many private star parties many of which are the local schools in our area. We are also associated with the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo and provide star parties several times over the summer at the top of the Sky Ride, including the Stargazing Evenings. THIS Friday, August 19th beginning at 8:00pm is the LAST Stargazing Evening for the 2011 season.
