HOME

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.

Due to the resurgence of COVID-19 infections in Lubbock County, the South Plains Astronomy Club has put plans for resuming our public stargazing events on hold. We will re-evaluate the situation in the coming weeks to determine when we might be able to resume these events.
