Outreach

ORBIT stands for OutReach Builders Team. We are the outreach arm of the Seattle Astronomical Society.

The official mission of the SAS includes outreach as one of the main efforts of the organization. However, we recognize that not all astronomers are equally interested in outreach, and the ORBIT group was created so that we will communicate outreach-related matters only to those who are interested.

Celebrate National Astronomy Day Saturday, April 29, 2017!

Upcoming Outreach Events

The next meeting will be held at Bathhouse Theater, Green Lake, Seattle, US
