Amateur Astronomy for the Tennessee Valley

Nov 2017 Eric and Rocky solar package NSN

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 a local group of backyard astronomers and stargazers, which was formed for the delight of curiosity about our unfolding universe, the tiny place we occupy within it, and the amazing views this hobby provides.

Club meetings are held on the last Thursday of each month at the UNA Planetarium & Observatory in Florence, and at LaGrange College Historic Site in March and September… with varying meeting dates in July and December.  The public is always welcome.

If weather permits, we will set up a telescope during First Fridays Florence — sometimes at the corner of Tennessee and Seminary, and others at Court & Mobile.
