Cache Valley Astronomical Society
Welcome to CVAS
Welcome to the Cache Valley Astronomical Society. We are a group of amateur astonomers providing monthly meetings and star parties to promote our love of astronomy to Cache Valley and Northern Utah. The largest city in Cache Valley is Logan, Utah. Home of Utah State University. We are family friendly and love to share our passion for astronomy through public outreach and education programs.

This webpage is designed to provide information about the club's events and activities. We describe our meeting times and location as well as our star parties, dates and locations. We encouage anyone interested in astronomy to join us.

We meet monthly Jan to April and September to December in the Science Engineering Research building room 244 on the USU campus. The other months we plan star parties at Beaver Ski resort or Mt Logan Park in Logan. These events are open to the public. See this link to the USU campus map. Building 68B. We have twenty active members in our club. We invite anyone interersted to join CVAS.

As a club many of our members are willing to provide astronomy education class for any group in the Cache Valley Area. We encourage anyone to join the CVAS. You can be a novice or advanced. We believe you have something to offer the club and community. All of our lectures and public star parties are open to anyone.
CVAS membership has many benefits.  You can borrow our loaner 10 inch Newtonian club telescope.  We also have a book lending library for club members.  You do not need to be a club member to attend our monthly meetings or star and sun parties.
