Our vision is to "create an environment where anyone, regardless of ethnic origin, cultural belief or socioeconomic status, succeeds in meeting their personal astronomical education goals through state of the art learning activities and unsurpassed membership benefits".
Our mission is to "engage and educate those of all interest levels and to provide the highest quality of astronomical science to our community and beyond".
Our educational mission is to
“create unique STEM engagement opportunities for a diverse set of students and provide access to current space science.”
We redefined ourselves in 2021. We were an astronomy club for 9 years with just over 400 members. We are now an association with a renewed purpose and focus.
