We are (www.svas.org) the Sacramento Valley Astronomical Society (SVAS), and we are the oldest Astronomy group (Since 1945) of amateur/professional astronomers promoting an interest in Astronomy. Join us at various locations and also at our Observatory high in the Sierras. Before the pandemic, and hopefully again soon, we conducted public star parties at schools, museums, and other venues, as well as public presentations on astronomical topics. Members of SVAS have access to our Observatory and the large telescopes there, most notably the 16-inch Ritchey-Chretien!
We have established a GoFundMe account to assist us in helping youth learn more about astronomy and science in general.
