ABOUT US

East Valley Astronomy Club (EVAC) is a group of more than 200 astronomy enthusiasts in the eastern part of the Valley of the Sun. We started out in 1987 as a small band of amateur astronomers in the eastern suburbs of Phoenix, hence the name "East Valley Astronomy Club." We became a nonprofit, registered Arizona  501 (c) (3) corporation in 1995.

 

Our membership now includes people from all over the valley, even a few from out of town. Our purpose is simple: to forge a network of friendly people with a common interest in star-gazing and astronomical science.

 

We also promote public awareness and education of astronomy by sponsoring viewing sessions for both the general public and local area schools.
