About the Longmont Astronomical Society
The Longmont Astronomical Society is a non-profit amateur astronomy club based in Longmont, Colorado. The club was founded in 1987 by people enthused about astronomy and who were looking for an avenue to share their enthusiasm with others of like interest. Since then the club's membership has grown to over 100 (both families and individuals) that embody all levels of experience and interest. All of the photos at right were taken by members of the club.
Our meetings and star parties are open to the public, and all are encouraged to attend.
