Next event: May 18th Star Party!

Our next event will be our monthly First Quarter Friday star party on Friday, May 18th at the College Hill Reservoir, 24th and Lawrence, in Eugene. The weather forecast looks good, so come up to the reservoir and have a look at the Spring sky with us. There'll be plenty to look at, starting with Venus, the Moon, and Jupiter as twilight falls, star clusters as the sky gets darker, and galaxies when the sky gets good and dark. Twilight starts about 8:45-9:00, so look for us from about then onward. We'll probably be there until 10:30 or 11:00 if the weather holds.

New Telescope Lending Page

We have just posted a new page detailing the Eugene Astronomical Society telescope lending program. It provides useful information on the telescopes we lend out and how you can go about picking one up. Check it out here!
