Where neighbors of all ages join together to appreciate the sky through observation, discussion and education

We started five years ago with a handfull of hobbyists in Verrado located  in the city of Buckeye, Arizona.  We now have more than 300 members and subscribers sharing a common interest in the field of astronomy.

How we got started

When we first got together we thought that this might be a forum for serious science minded individuals.  Like most astronomy clubs, we shared interest in improving our hobby, learning more about the latest technology in the science and improving ourselves through common interaction with other astronomers.  We quickly discovered that it was far more rewarding to share the wonders of the night sky with anyone regardless of their level of knowledge or expertise in astronomy.   So our membership is comprised of anyone from any age group or geographical location that has any interest in learning about the night sky.
