astronomyThe Roanoke Valley Astronomical Society is one of the leading astronomical groups in the area. Through a variety of projects and programs the Roanoke Valley Astronomical Society works to expand the knowledge and education of astronomy to children and adults alike. For a number of reasons astronomy simply has not been a wildly popular science recently but thanks to many astronomical groups astronomy has been getting more and more popular through the past few years.

Whether you’re already skilled and knowledgeable in astronomy and astrological study or simply want to learn more, many local groups may be ready and willing to accept you as a member. As long as you want to help spread education to others, whether that includes yourself, children, or others, you are surely welcome to take part in the various events. You can look up various scheduled events on the internet and find out what is coming up soon and make sure to mark your calendar so you do not miss out on any incredible events. Don’t worry about missing out on some events though because there are many great events each year. Odds are you will decide to become a dedicated member of an astronomical Society when you first get started and visit a few informative meetings.
