NEW: Eclipse Glasses Redistribution Program
Astronomers Without Borders will be announcing a program to collect eclipse glasses for distribution to other countries for future eclipses. Hold on to your glasses! Ask the company or organization you got them from if they will be taking part. We will announce details soon after the eclipse. We have corporate partners who will be receiving and processing them for us. Please DO NOT send them to AWB! Sign up for our newsletter for more details or follow us on Facebook.

About Us

Founded in 1974, the San Antonio Astronomical Association is located in San Antonio, Texas, in the United States of America. Our members reside primarily in Bexar, Comal, Guadalupe, Kendall, and Medina counties near San Antonio. Our primary purpose is to provide our members and the public education, enjoyment, and entertainment through astronomy.

Christ Lutheran Church is on the east side of Broadway next to Alamo Heights High School. Parking is in the lot on the south side of the church. Membership is open to all those interested in astronomy. All meetings are open to the public and free of charge.  We also offer a Novice Meeting for those who are new to Astronomy.  The Novice Meeting is usually held before the Monthly Meeting, starting at 6:30 p.m.

The SAAA also offers free programs to public and private schools, scouts, libraries, and universities. Special astronomy programs are often scheduled with civic, handicapped, science, and nature organizations such as the Sierra Club, Girl Scouts, and Boy Scouts and with parks personnel at county, city, and state levels.
