Arkansas Valley Astronomical Society

Astronomy Club for Colorado's
Upper Arkanas River Valley

Including Buena Vista, Salida, Leadville and surrounding areas.

Arkansas Valley Astronomical Society is a club of amateur astronomers, night sky enthusiasts, and telescope lovers based in Colorado's beautiful Upper Arkansas River Valley. Most of our members live in Buena Vista & Salida, but we have members from Leadville & South Park, and part time members who spend only part of each year in our valley.

Whether you are serious about astronomy, or just wanting to learn more; we encourage you to JOIN AVAS and attend some of our meetings. We are a 'laid back' club, getting together approximately once a month to "talk stars", look through members' telescopes, socialize, and generally learn from each other about the night sky and all its wonders.

Check out our Astronomy News page for the latest issue of our Club Newsletter, find out when and where our next scheduled meeting will be, and to find out all the latest astronomy related events and happenings in the world.

See the Astronomy Articles page for articles and instructional astronomy stories written by members of our club, or about our club. Also our Astronomy Links page references other Astronomy related websites, some by members of our club. Finally, the AVAS Members page has a list of those in our club... maybe you already know one of us.

Finally if you are interested in becoming a member, see our Join AVAS page, or Contact Us for more information.

Enjoy our website, and help keep Colorado's beautiful night skies dark!
