The Brevard Astronomical Society is a group of amateur
astronomers in Brevard County, Florida. We are affiliated with the
Melbourne Astronomical Society, and we are loosely
affiliated with the Kennedy Space Center Amateur Astronomers
and have several KSCAA members in our Society. Some of us are
beginners, learning to find bright planets and major
constellations. Others possess extensive knowledge from years
of experience studying the universe. Some of us make casual
observations with our unaided eyes or small binoculars, guided by
simple star charts or a planisphere. Others use the latest high-resolution
charts, computer-driven equipment, multiple large telescopes,
and giant binoculars. One of our members writes a weekly
astronomy column in our local newspaper.
