Welcome to the Clemson Area Amateur Astronomers Website

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 contact us.

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.
