The goal of the Clemson Area Amateur Astronomers is the enhancement of Amateur Astronomy by fellowship, sharing knowledge and enjoyment of the hobby. We provide outreach programs when asked and hold events throughout the year, such as “Public Star Parties” and “Meteor Viewing Sessions” and “Just for Fun” viewing sessions. Meetings are held on the first Monday of each month unless otherwise noted.
Clemson Area Amateur Astronomers serves the upstate of South Carolina in Oconee, Pickens and Anderson Counties. If you are interested in Astronomy as we are, we hope you will join us at one of our star parties, meetings, or lectures. If you would like to become a member please click HERE.
Clemson Area Amateur Astronomers has an enthusiastic and varied membership from all walks of life. Our mission is to inform, educate and entertain by providing a varied and interesting program of activities for our membership and the communities we serve. Our projects include educational programs and presentations by guest speakers and our members, public star parties, field observation of various astronomical events and trips to observatories and other space science venues.
CAAA has been a NASA Night Sky Network member since 2004. The Night Sky Network(NSN) is a nationwide coalition of amateur astronomy clubs bringing the science, technology, and inspiration of NASA’s missions to the general public.
As a member club of the NSN, the Clemson Amateur Astronomers Club has access to a number of resources designed to support our public outreach programs.
These programs earn ‘Outreach Toolkits’, which can be used for future programs, at schools, and other public events that the CAAA hosts. Click HERE to register for the NSN.
