West Valley Astronomy Club was founded 26 years ago. We are located in the West Valley, some 15 miles west of Phoenix.
WVAC is a friendly, engaging, and informative community in the West Valley. Our annual membership is affordable and offers several benefits. Click below to read more about WVAC membership benefits and/or how to join
We now (starting this year) meet seven times a year from October to April. Meetings take place on the first Tuesday of October, November, December, January, February, March, and April. December is our holiday party meeting and in January we host our hands-on parking lot viewing event.
Our meetings feature guest speakers, including staff astronomers from Arizona Observatories or professional astronomers from Arizona universities.
Weather permitting, our star Parties are held monthly; seeing conditions are among some of the best in the United States.
