The Charlotte Amateur Astronomers Club is a group of like-minded astronomy enthusiasts who appreciate and observe the wonders of our universe.
The mission of the Charlotte Amateur Astronomers Club is to share our passion for amateur astronomy with the community through education and public outreach while providing the highest value astronomy club experience for our members. It is through this sharing process that we will work to build a greater appreciation of the dark night sky that will help protect its natural beauty from the encroachment of artificial lighting.

Do you work uptown and take lunch between 11.30am-1.30pm. If so, a couple of our club members will be outside the Central Library at the corner of East 6th & North Tryon with a couple of solar telescopes. They tell you to never look directly at the sun... and they're right. But, we can help you break that rule, while keeping your eyesight. Come on down and say hello. Both to us, and your local star!
Hope for clear skies tonight! We will be helping Discovery Place hold their Statewide Star party event tonight on the top deck of their parking lot in uptown Charlotte. Come out and join us for some beautiful views of the Moon, Venus & Jupiter. Starting at 7pm as we set up telescopes and enjoy the sun setting and the planets appearing. With the best views coming after about 8pm, event ending at 10pm. Hope to see you out there!
