The South Plains Astronomy Club was founded by a group of very serious amateur astronomers with the goal of fostering interest and activities in all phases of astronomy for its members and the public. The Club is very active in public outreach activities that involve youth and families across the South Plains. The Club meets twice monthly to host Public Star Parties to introduce the community to the wonder and enjoyment of the night sky.
