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.
