Astronomical Society of Nevada

The ASN prides itself on its varied activities, whether it is a public star party or private gathering. Members gather for monthly meetings, star parties, or any event that offers an excuse to pull out telescopes. The ASN involves itself in many public events. Star parties for events and schools are always well attended.

The ASN has ventured sometimes more than 100 miles to present the heavens to budding astronomers in the outlying areas of the state. Members gather for dark sky observation at several sites on a regular basis. These gatherings allow members to explore their own interests from galaxies to nebulas and are always open to interested persons.
