The Eugene Astronomical Society is a group of amateur astronomers dedicated to observing the sky and learning about the Universe, and sharing that understanding and appreciation of astronomy with students and the general public.

We invite you to read the rest of our mission statement here, or feel free to take a look around.

Next event: July 28th star party

Our next scheduled event is our monthly First Quarter Friday star party on July 28th at the College Hill Reservior, 24th and Lawrence in Eugene. First Quarter Fridays are great opportunities to look at the night sky through telescopes, whether you bring your own or just come and look through ours. The star party will start about 9:00 and last as long as we have interested people to show things to.

We will also have eclipse glasses for sale, so if you haven't gotten your solar shades for the upcoming eclipse, this Friday is your opportunity.

In the event of clouds on Friday, we'll try again on Saturday the 29th.

Thank you to the Canadian Meteorlogical Center and for this forecast of our observing conditions:
