The South Plains Astronomy Club is a small group of active astronomers who enjoy observing under the beautifully dark West Texas skies while being serenaded by coyotes and night birds. We’re a friendly bunch who enjoy showing newcomers the night skies and discussing the latest in telescopes, astro-imaging, astronomical discoveries and space exploration.

CLUB NEWS

18 April 2019.  The new version of the South Plains Astronomy Club website was unveiled at our April club meeting. The new webpage contains all the information from the previous one plus many new enhancements and a hopefully more eye-catching design. The new website can be accessed at http://cat-star.org/southplainsastronomy/spac-index.html.
18 April 2019.  In our monthly club meeting, the South Plains Astronomy Club named the weekend of June 28-29 as the tentative date for the First Annual South Plains Astronomy Club "Star-BQ". The weekend of August 2-3 was identified as the backup date for the event in case weather prevents holding it in June.
21 March 2019.  In our monthly club meeting, the South Plains Astronomy Club unanimously approved holding the First Annual South Plains Astronomy Club "Star-BQ". This event will consist of a late-afternoon barbeque followed after sunset by an all-night observing session. The event is for SPAC members, family and invited guests and will be held at a dark-sky site in King County (approximately 100 miles east of Lubbock) operated by several club members. The event is tentatively planned for late-spring or early-summer.
