It's good to be back. It's been two years since we last came together and we hope you can join us for a night of astronomy, community, and celebration!

For 2022, we're thrilled to feature Joanne Hughes, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Physics at Seattle U, presenting on Globular Clusters and Galaxy Formation. We're also excited to have Katherine Johnston presenting on NASA's Artemis missions to the Moon. Finally, we welcome back Warren Dunes providing vibrant tunes throughout the evening.

New this year, we're featuring an astrophotography fundraising gallery. Proceeds from the night will support our new Telescopes-For-All youth summer program!

We hope to welcome both new friends and longtime SAS members. Let's come together in community and create something special together.

We'd love to have your support via our "astrofundraiser" gallery. The auction is now live through 3/19 @ 8:30 PM! SAS community members have donated their own personal favorite astrophotography images available for a suggested donation. Interested in providing an image or have questions? Please contact Alan at membership@seattleastro.org

We need your support! We are excited to share that we will be raising funds for a new free summer program teaching Astronomy 101 to youth while working together to learn how to use a telescope. Best of all? We hope to empower young astronomers by providing them with a quality telescope to take home for themselves. Want to learn more in how you can support? Contact Aaron at president@seattleastro.org

We're hoping that all photos will have a bid of at least $20 so let's support both our fellow members and the cause itself by making bids for everyone's hard work.
