Welcome to the Utah Valley Astronomy Club or UVAC. We are a group of astronomy enthusiasts and amateur astronomers who share a common passion for the night sky. We come from all kinds of backgrounds and areas of expertise and we welcome anyone who has an interest in astronomy.
Our format is simple. The club is currently free to join. The star parties, lectures, and presentation nights are free to attend. All that is required is interest, enthusiasm, and some common courtesies outlined on our Star Parties page.
Our Event Calendar shows the dates of our activities. We hold public and private star parties and we invite guest lecturers to give public presentations on all kinds of astronomy subjects, including topics on modern science and cosmology, good advice on astronomy gear and astrophotography, and even subjects like ancient astronomy and sky mythology. We invite all to come and participate, with or without a scope.
Our Facebook group is a great way to meet and converse with the local astronomy community. Like our Facebook publicity page to get news and updates about the club. If you are a school or organization that would like help holding a Star Party, please Contact Us and we will see what we can do.
Because joining the club is currently free, we rely on the generosity of sponsors to keep up the website and administrative duties of maintaining a community organization. Please visit our Sponsors page where you can see who floats us so you can do business with them.
