We are a group of amateur astronomers from in and around the south coastal Massachusetts/ Rhode Island area. Our membership represents a wide range of astronomical interests.

We have people dedicated to visual observing, and people engaged in advanced astrophotography. We have people passionate about comet hunting, and people who love to practice binocular astronomy. We have people tracking asteroids, and people who enjoy examining the moon. We’ve got planet lovers and sun enthusiasts, telescope builders and observatory owners.

Above all, we have one thing in common; a passion for amateur astronomy. Our club motto is to educate and inspire, and we do just that on a continual basis. We teach each other and we learn from each other. We share our adventures and triumphs, and we inspire others to try new things. We work with schools and the general public, spreading knowledge and passion for all things astronomy. Most of all, we’re there for each other. The bond of common interest runs deep, and support for fellow members is abundant as we strive to learn and grow.

To find out what we’re all about, just come to a meeting. You don’t have to be a dues-paying member to attend our meetings, so come on down, introduce yourself, and see what we’ve got to offer. The door’s open!
