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.

MESSAGE BOARD
The Message Board is used to post timely information about club events, such as the Saturday Star Walk and the Public Star Parties. For general comments or questions, email us at SPAC@cat-star.org.

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.
