Welcome to the Indiana Astronomical Society!

We are an organization that offers the opportunity to share and learn about one of the most ancient and, at the same time, most contemporary of sciences. Our membership includes people of all ages and in many types of professions.

If you're just starting out, congratulations! Astronomy is an immense field with many different and enjoyable areas that you can study. For the beginner, the club has groups to assist you with visual observing and navigating the night sky.

The primary goal of our Society is to make the study of astronomy an experience that is both fun and rewarding. All that is needed from you is your enthusiasm and desire to participate in this fascinating hobby.
