Everglades Astronomical Society

Marco Island FL 34146

Since 1981, the Everglades Astronomical Society (EAS) has been serving our members and the public in all aspects of amateur astronomy. If you want to keep up with the space program, learn what's happening at the frontiers of astronomical research, or just appreciate the beauty of the night sky, we can help.

Events and Activities 2016-2017

Monthly meetings are held at the Norris Center at the corner of 8th Street South and 8th Avenue South in Naples, Florida every second Tuesday of the month, September thru June. We meet at 7pm. Informal meetings are held in July and August at various places determined in advance and annouced via newsletter. Upon occasion, we might reschedule meetings during the holiday season to avoid heavy traffic.

We also host observing sessions at our dark-sky site for all members and invited guests; these are known as "star parties". If you're thinking of getting a telescope or binoculars, you can get advice from experienced stargazers. To see how fortunate we are to have this site go to the Photo Gallery and see club members' photos and a photo taken from the Space Shuttle of Florida at night.

Usually the best times to go out to the observing site are moonless nights. Upcoming Saturday nights that you will often find fellow club members out there enjoying the skies with you (weather permitting) are November 19 and November 26. Members will receive an e-mail that afternoon from our viewing coordinator confirming or canceling the event based on the weather. New members will also receive detailed instructions for reaching our dark sky site upon request.
