An invitation to curious minds! The Roanoke Valley Astronomical Society invites you to share in the wonder and excitement of exploring the Cosmos. We invite you to gain an intimate and personal connection with the planets, stars, galaxies, and other strange and beautiful elements of the observable universe. While this public Meetup site is used to post the Society's activities and serves as a platform for open discussion of astronomical events, actual membership to the Roanoke Valley Astronomical Society is separate. We invite you to come to a monthly meeting and learn more about the benefits of becoming a member of the Society and perhaps develop an interest that will last a lifetime.
