The Brevard Astronomical Society is a group of amateur
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
learning to find bright planets and major
constellations. Others possess
extensive knowledge from years
of experience studying the universe. Some of us
observations with our unaided eyes or small binoculars, guided by
simple star charts or a planisphere. Others use the latest high-resolution
computer-driven equipment, multiple large telescopes,
and giant binoculars. One of our members writes a weekly
astronomy column in our local newspaper.
