The Eastbay Astronomical Society partners with schools, libraries, Scouting groups, and S.T.E.M. organizers for evening star parties and other Outreach events.  Our experienced astronomy volunteers bring out telescopes and other equipment, sharing close-up views of the moon, planets, star clusters, nebulae and galaxies.  We seek to provide a unique and inspiring experience of the night sky!

To arrange an astronomy event with EAS, contact Raymond Howard at outreach@eastbayastro.org .  Events are always free of charge, and of course weather dependent.  Also contact Raymond if you’re an EAS member who would like to get involved.  No obligation to participate, and no equipment needed.  Already on the volunteer list?  Stay tuned for requests!
