LCRVAC is a volunteer non-profit charitable organization dedicated to promoting the enjoyment and education of astronomy and related subjects to members, the general public and students throughout Northeastern Arizona. Membership is open to anyone interested in astronomy and the night sky, regardless of experience or background.
Around new moon we have a monthly meeting to observe and work on amateur telescope making projects. Everyone is welcome to join any of our meetings and see what's up.
Ownership of a telescope is not a requirement for membership. LCRVAC was formed primarily as a viewing and imaging club, allowing people who share any interest in astronomy and related topics to join with others to ask questions, share knowledge and observing experiences. The club’s affiliation with the Astronomical League provides access to many beginner, intermediate and advanced observing programs and goals. Many of our observing programs just require naked eye observations or the use of inexpensive binoculars.
Club membership is renewable each December which includes membership in the Astronomical League, a subscription to the League's quarterly magazine, "The Reflector", discounted subscriptions to Astronomy and Sky & Telescope magazines, discounted book purchases, access to the club's reference library, telescopes and imaging equipment & accessories.
If you’re an educator in the White Mountain community please feel free to contact us in regards to the club’s science oriented educational observing programs. If you’re a public events coordinator then consider contacting the club to enhance your event with one of our Telescope Observing programs.
