The Salt Lake Astronomical Society (SLAS) is a nonprofit corporation formed in the state of Utah.  We're composed of over 200 members wishing to enjoy the pleasures and benefits of an association of persons interested in astronomy.

We're here to:
promote astronomy
encourage public education and interest
coordinate activities with professional research

Monthly meetings are:
Every 3rd Wednesday of the month at 7:30 p.m. (Except December, check the event calendar for any changes).  Non-members are welcome to attend the meetings, however we'd love to have you join the club!

We have a beautiful facility at Stansbury Park called the Stansbury Park Observatory Complex (SPOC) consisting of the Harmons Observatory, which houses two large reflecting telescopes, and the Donna Pease Wiggins Refractor House which houses a large refracting telescope.

SLAS is governed by a constitution and a yearly elected Board of Directors consisting of:
vice president
two board members.
We also have some positions that are appointed by the Board.
