Vandenberg Amateur Astronomical Society (a.k.a. VAAS)


Welcome to the About VAAS web page.

VAAS is an informal group of amateur astronomers that was founded in 1985. Our members range from "beginner" to "extremely advanced."

We have club meetings once a month on the second Friday of the month at 7:00PM in the teachers lounge at Mazanita Charter School. We do not have meetings in July and August.

Membership is $20 a year for a family. The yearly membership fee is prorated, quarterly, for new members.

Visitors, prospective members, and anybody interested in astronomy, is welcome to attend club functions.

Holiday Season Meeting

We have held our holiday season club meeting at a local restaurant for the last few years.

Summer Picnic

VAAS members share more than an interest in astronomy, we like to have a picnic during the summer.
