Skokie Valley Astronomers (SVA) is a club devoted to amateur astronomy. We meet at 8:00 pm on the second Friday of every month at the Ryerson Woods Welcome Center (also known as the Edward L. Ryerson Conservation Area) in Deerfield, IL. All of our meetings are open to the public and free of charge. You're invited!
Our meetings usually start with a presentation on some aspect of astronomy, and then we move outside for viewing the sky (weather permitting). Many of our members bring telescopes to each meeting, and they love to let everyone have a look. If you're interested in amateur astronomy or even if you're just curious, please join us on a Friday evening.
