East Valley Astronomy Club (EVAC) is a group of more than 200 astronomy enthusiasts in the eastern part of the Valley of the Sun. We started out in 1987 as a small band of amateur astronomers in the eastern suburbs of Phoenix, hence the name "East Valley Astronomy Club." We became a nonprofit Arizona corporation in June, 1995. Our membership now includes people from all over the valley, even a few from out of town. Our purpose is simple: to forge a network of friendly people with a common interest in star-gazing and astronomical science. We also promote public awareness and education of astronomy by sponsoring viewing sessions for both the general public and local area schools. If you would like EVAC to host an event at your school or organization, please complete the EVAC Outreach Request form. If you are curious about attending an EVAC meeting or event, please review the Meetings & Events menu to see our wide variety of public events and outreach activities.
