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!

Charles “Charlie” William Paul

January 11, 1935 – August 10, 2018

Charles “Charlie” Paul, a long time active member of our society passed away. Charlie served in many roles including president, observing chairman, and events coordinator. He loved sharing his knowledge with other members and the general public. He particularly loved sharing with young people his love of astronomy.

Charlie loved the Winter Star Party. He, along with his sons and other members, attended the WSP many years in a row. Charlie was privileged to attend the 2018 solar eclipse. These events brought great joy to him.

He was more than an amateur astronomer. Charlie was a mentor, a voice of reason, and a true friend. He will be greatly missed.
