Seattle Astronomical Society
by John Burton
The Seattle Astronomical Society is an organization created and sustained by people who share a common interest in the observational, educational, and social aspects of amateur astronomy. Established in 1948, the SAS is a diverse collection of over 200 individuals.
A variety of programs and activities is presented by the SAS throughout the year. Monthly meetings feature speakers on a wide range of topics, from the Hubble Space Telescope to electronic imaging to personal observing experiences.
The club holds public observing "star parties" at Green Lake every month, dark sky observing parties outside Seattle, plus such activities as meteor watches, public telescope and astronomy displays, National Astronomy Day, and an annual Awards Banquet.
