Welcome To The Pontchartrain Astronomy Society

THE PONTCHARTRAIN ASTRONOMY SOCIETY (PAS) is a non-profit astronomy club with a membership of nearly 130 individuals and families, mainly from the Southeast Louisiana and Southern Mississippi areas. PAS members come from many walks of life and have diverse interests in amateur astronomy, who strive to enhance the study and enjoyment of astronomy.

PAS members hope to promote an understanding and appreciation of astronomy in our community, sharing their time and telescopes to engage the public with unique astronomy experiences.

We hope that the information to be found on this PAS site encourages you to enjoy astronomy, too!


Did Santa bring a telescope this year? Why not join us for one of our monthly meetings? We will be happy to share our knowledge and answer questions from our new to astronomy friends. All of our meetings are free and open to the public, and held at the UNO campus in the Science building, room 1001. Our January meeting will be Friday, Jan 18, 2019 at 7:30. The February meeting will be Friday Feb 22, 2019 at 7:30. Come out and meet fellow astronomy enthusiasts, bring your questions for discussion and possibly make some new friends! Hope to see you soon!
