Who We Are

The Northwest Region of the Astronomical League is focused on sharing astronomy with the public.

Our field events, or outings (also called star parties) are held under dark skies, which enhances the “seeing” away from city lights. We hold these, sometimes in conjunction with other events, to help newcomers get started in observing the night sky. Remember that there are no dumb questions! We do this for free and share our resources to acquaint people with current events, equipment, and enthusiasm of amateur astronomy. Our events make for great learning experiences for all ages. We belong to the larger Astronomical League.
