We are a group of amateur astronomers who live in and around the Brazos Valley of Texas. Be sure to visit our web site at http://www.brazosvalleyastronomyclub.org.
We are interested in sky watching, imaging, and sharing our craft and love of astronomy with each other and the public at large.
The purpose of BVAC is to provide astronomical education, recreation, and research for its members and the public. We get together for star parties as well as club meetings with invited guest speakers to talk about astronomy and astrophysics.
