Why Join the PAS?

Astronomy is fun, but it's a real blast when you do it with other people.

The PAS is a local astronomy club in New Orleans, LA, where you'll find like-minded enthusiasts eager to share their knowledge and love of the sky with you, along with their own dark sky observatory. Club meetings offer opportunities to try out new equipment, learn new techniques, and make new friends. Develop your skills and passion for astronomy by joining today.

Welcome to the PAS Site

THE PONTCHARTRAIN ASTRONOMY SOCIETY (PAS) is a non-profit astronomy club with a membership of nearly 130 individuals and families, mainly from the Southeast Louisiana and Southern Mississippi areas. PAS members come from many walks of life and have diverse interests in amateur astronomy, who strive to enhance the study and enjoyment of astronomy.

PAS members hope to promote an understanding and appreciation of astronomy in our community, sharing their time and telescopes to engage the public with unique astronomy experiences.

We hope that the information to be found on this PAS site encourages you to enjoy astronomy, too!

    I am the current President of the PAS.

    Is there light (or should I say clear dark skies) at the end of the tunnel? I hope so. There is something psychological about September. While it is not quite yet fall, most of us think of September as the beginning of fall (without looking at calendar dates or heeding the weather). In any event, in a few short weeks we should really start seeing evidence of fall with cooler days and clearer night skies. Considering our hot and rainy summer...we are due.
