Everglades Astronomical Society
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.
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. We meet at 7pm.
We also host observing sessions at our dark-sky site for all members and invited guests. 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. A list of upcoming Saturday nights that you will often find fellow club members out there enjoying the skies with you (weather permitting): August 27 and September 3.
Please check the Web site calendar for any schedule changes.
