We are astronomy enthusiasts in Longview, WA. We love to learn and to share our wonder at the amazing sights right overhead.
You don't need your own telescope to join!
Meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month.

There's a cool comet out there!
I have a question...Is anyone else seeing very fast moving lights in the sky the last week or so?? Way too high for planes and seem to be coming from the brightest star in the SW sky. Is that very large bright star Venus? I saw a creepy video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r2uxOzLlGzo
This is pretty exciting!
WOW-Thank you to my friends the Gawlicks of Shinju Dojo Aikido who coaxed me to come to the Solstice walk and let me spend the evening talking to the walkers!! Great event -from kids in prams to adults with canes and a die hard walker on crutches, tacos from La Familia - put this event on your calendar for next year..even with a bit of drizzle it was safe, fun and a great event . My thanks to everyone who worked so hard -all as community volunteers- to create and run this fun event.
I would like to sell my Meade LX50 8" SCT set-up, I am not using it anymore, it's in great shape! Interested? Please message me. Keep looking up! 😎
Thank you for helping us figure out our telescope tonight and sharing yours! You were all so friendly and helpful!!!
Going to mile post 37 or 40 on the Spirit Lake Hwy
Where do you guys go to observe the Perseids? We are looking for a place we can stay overnight
What can you tell me about the up coming Mt. St. Helens Star Party?
Hello everyone, I have a freind named Cindy Long that has a programmable telescope that she hasnt used in 2 years because she doesnt know how to use it, even after she read the manual.
So if anyone here could help her, shes on Facebook, and i even invited her to the meeting tommorrow night. So id like to see hereyes light up & would get hooked on star gazing & also keep her from turning on the T.V.. Thank you people :)

My 91 year old father has asked me to re-post about the RV sites he has for rent for the eclipse this August.
Dads place is about 20 miles south of Madras on Crooked River Ranch. RV space includes H2O and electricity for only $50 per night.
If interested, message me or post a response. There are now 8 spots remaining.
