Amateur Astronomy for the Tennessee Valley

Welcome to the Shoals Astronomy Club!  Our next meeting will be Thursday, September 29th at 7 p.m. at the UNA Planetarium, with our next public astronomy event on Friday, October 7th in downtown Florence during First Fridays.  We will set up a telescope for public viewing at the northwest corner of Tennessee and Seminary streets, and the public is welcome to observe.

The next day, Saturday, October 8th is Astronomy Day and International Observe the Moon Night, and we’ll be back downtown for both events as well!  We will attach solar filters on our scopes for safe viewing of the sun, and after moonrise we’ll observe craters, mountains and other features of our nearest celestial neighbor.

If you have questions, please contact us via email (shoalsastro –at —, or visit our Facebook page.  Clear skies!
