The Eugene Astronomical Society is a group of amateur astronomers dedicated to observing the sky and learning about the Universe, and sharing that understanding and appreciation of astronomy with students and the general public.

We invite you to read the rest of our mission statement here, or feel free to take a look around.

Next events: Club meeting February 21

Our monthly club meeting will be held on Thursday, February 21st. This month we'll have a discussion of Sky Safari, a powerful planetarium program for your phone or tablet that makes navigating the night sky much easier than using paper charts. Sky Safari is a feature-packed program that takes a while to learn. Come to our meeting and listen and ask questions as Jerry Oltion and Dan Beacham go through the program and explain its many features. The meeting is held at the Eugene Science Center planetarium and starts at 7:00.

Thank you to the Canadian Meteorlogical Center and for this forecast of our observing conditions:
