(WVAC offers a number of benefits – Listed below are a few of our membership perks)
Top Notch Educational Programs – Joining puts you in contact with other like minded amateur astronomers. Unlike other clubs where talks are often provided by local members – our speakers are exclusively professionals in the field of Astronomy and Space Technology. Review our comprehensive history of guest speakers.
Monthly Stargazing Fun – Whether you have a telescope or not, you are welcome to join our monthly Star Parties. Our star parties always include knowledgeable members who regularly assemble at our NW valley viewing site (out towards Wickenburg) for stargazing and fun conversation. If you are a newbie with a newly purchased instrument and need advice or help setting up – come to the Star Party – you welcome to all the help you need.
Off-Site Extracurricular Trips – The WVAC club sponsors interesting field-trips to local astronomy-related venues and organizations. Some of our more recent engaging excursions have been to the LBT Telescope on Mt. Graham, Lowell Observatory with it’s newly renovated Clark Telescope, the Meteorite Lab at ASU, and the Mirror Lab in Tucson, to mention just a few.
Buy and Sell – We offer donated telescopes at Greatly Reduced prices for the beginner or persons wanting to add to their capabilities. We will also list your used gear on our website for the betterment of our members.
Come to one of our meetings as a guest – and enjoy the camaraderie.
Check out our educational and friendly programs.
