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.


A few hours after sunset and before sunrise, it's possible to observe numerous artificial satellites crossing the sky. There are a number of websites that show what satellites are currently up or when they may be expected to appear. Links to a few of these websites are provided below.
