About

Welcome to the San Francisco Amateur Astronomers! We are here to help you get the most out of amateur astronomy.

SFAA Mission: Our club has something fun and interesting for all to do, whether a beginner or an experienced amateur. Our members are Bay Area enthusiasts who love the varied aspects of our hobby – public outreach, star viewing trips, scientific lectures, telescope making, as well as private members-only dark sky viewing nights and more.

The SFAA has been operating since 1952 and proudly continues a long tradition of helping promote the appreciation of the wonders of the night sky within our Bay Area community. SFAA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Membership dues are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
