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!
