Every third Saturday of the month we offer an Open House  at the Meyer Observatory near Clifton, Texas. Registration is encouraged, and we have an indoor program in case of cloudy weather.

 We also host three other public stargazing events (star parties) at various locations in Central Texas. Please check the Calendar of Events for Dates & Times.

Bell County Star Party @ Overlook Park at Still House Hollow Lake in Belton

Hubbard Star Party @ Hubbard Lake Park in Hubbard

Waco Star Party @ Heritage Square in downtown Waco
(check Calendar for dates)

  These events are outdoors and will get cancelled in case of poor weather.

Use the links in our public events calendar to the left
for schedule and registration.

Can't come to one of the public events?  We can come to you!  We often will host private star parties at schools, churches, scout camp outs, and the occasional promotional event, at your location.  You can even rent the Meyer Observatory for your own private star party!


Our members meet once a month, near the New Moon, at Meyer Observatory for the Member Star Party.  The observing field is always open for members and guests.

Public is Welcome

CTAS General Business Meeting - 10/19/2021

CTAS is an entirely volunteer organization.  We have no paid staff and yet we make major scientific contributions, support education and student research, and reach out to the public to promote the awareness of astronomy. We are Amateur Astronomers in the truest sense:
  (amateur, noun, person who engages in study for
pleasure rather than for
financial benefit or professional reasons)

As a non-profit educational organization, all donations are 100% tax deductible.
