Welcome to the Peoria Astronomical Society!



The Peoria Astronomical Society is a non-profit organization of amateur astronomers from Peoria, Illinois and the surrounding community.

The PAS is very active, and we always have something exciting going on at least once a month.

Check out the Club Activities page for general information on telescope viewing, events, and public meetings.


Next Membership Meetings at the Planetarium, Downtown Peoria, IL

Wed, May 4, 7:30pm - 9:00p Topic: Horizon: The End of the Solar System

This BBC production included a visit to Peoria last October. It aired on BBC2 in the UK on Wednesday 13th April. A DVD is promised to us soon thereafter.

If the DVD does not arrive in time, we will view a PBS astronomy documentary that includes their 2004 filming of "our Interplanetary Bicycle Ride" from the Sun at Lakeview Museum to Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn.

The previously scheduled presentation by Sheldon Schafer on "The March 9, 2016 Indonesian Eclipse" is postponed until later in the year.
