Club Activities


Our regular meetings are on the first Wednesday of each month, at 7:30 pm. We meet at the planetarium in the new museum in downtown Peoria, IL. (Parking details below.)
The members meeting is a great place to meet other members, swap stories, and learn more about astronomy. The meetings are always free and open to the public.

Note: During the summer months (June, July, and August), we do not hold regular meetings. Instead we plan a star party event each month!
In September, we have our Annual Banquet, which takes the place of our September monthly meeting.

For the meeting schedule, updates, and detailed meeting information, please check the PAS calendar or Starlite newsletter.

Our board meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month at the Hardee's in the Northpoint Shopping Plaza on Knoxville Ave at 7:30 pm, and are open to all PAS members.

Observatories

The Peoria Astronomical Society maintains two observatories.

Northmoor Observatory is open to the public every cloudless Saturday night from the beginning of May through the end of October. You will find volunteers on hand to aid you in your discovery of the cosmos, from sunset until midnight. Private groups can also be scheduled any other time. Contact the Northmoor Observatory chairman for more information. Northmoor observatory has a brand new dome! Click here to read all about it!



Jubilee Observatory can be scheduled by any group almost any time. Please contact the Jubilee Observatory Chairman for more information.

We also have a variety of "loaner" telescopes available for members to use.
