CLUB DESCRIPTION

The Shreveport-Bossier Astronomical Society, Inc. has been continuously active since 1959. We are a 501(c) (3) that has provided free, public starparties since 1959. Our membership is open to anyone with an interest in astronomy and one does not have to own a telescope to enjoy the club and our activities. We operate the Shreveport Observatory (Owned by the Caddo Parish School Board) south of Shreveport. Every Spring and Fall we offer free, public starparties for kids of "all ages". Our monthly meetings are open to the public and include a brief business meeting followed by a presentation about various astronomical topics. We also provide outreach to local schools and the Boy/Girl Scouts. Membership dues are $25 per year. Included with dues is the club newsletter, The Observer.
