Amateur Astronomy for the Tennessee Valley
Welcome! If you own a pair of binoculars, or a telescope, and you enjoy getting lost under an inky black sky filled with stars, you’ve reached the right place. Shoals Astronomy Club is composed of backyard astronomers and stargazers, and established for the delight of curiosity about our unfolding universe, the tiny place we occupy within it, and the amazing views we enjoy in this hobby.
Our meetings are held on the last Thursday of each month (except December and July), and they convene at at 7:00 p.m. at the UNA Planetarium & Observatory in Florence. Everyone is invited, and membership with our club is not required. We also typically set up during First Fridays Florence if weather permits — sometimes at the corner of Tennessee and Seminary, and others at Court & Mobile in downtown Florence.
If you have questions, please contact us via email (shoalsastro –at — gmail.com), or visit our Facebook page. Clear skies!
