Astronomers of Verde Valley
The official logo of the Astronomers of Verde Valley
is an amateur astronomy club that serves the communities of the Verde Valley, Arizona. Here, surrounded by the Mingus Mountains and the Red Rock country of Sedona, we are favored by the clear air and dark skies of the high desert. We have an enthusiastic and varied membership that includes scientists, professional astronomers, teachers, authors, students, and big-city refugees from all walks of life. Our mission is to inform, educate and entertain by providing a varied and interesting program of activities for our membership and the communities we serve. Our projects include educational programs and presentations by guest speakers and our members, practical telescope design and construction, public star parties, field observation of various astronomical events and trips to observatories and other space science venues.
