Founded 1948

The Phoenix Astronomical Society, founded in 1948, is an organization of individuals with many related interests: telescopes, binoculars, astrophotography, computer planetaria, astronautics, sky lore, astrogeology,  NASA, and celestial navigation are just a few examples.   We are amateur and professional astronomers, teachers and learners, oldsters and youngsters, men and women ... all inquiring minds.   The one thing we share is a desire to know more about the wonders of the night sky.
