Helena Astronomical Society

The Helena Astronomical Society is the Montana capital’s amateur astronomy club, dedicated to offering free, public educational outreach and special observatory nights for our members.  Regardless of your experience level, if you have an interest in astronomy you are welcome to join us.  HAS owns 2 telescopes--one that is permanently mounted in our Observatory and a smaller telescope that can be checked out by members.  Additionally, we have a good collection of books on astronomy for all interests and skills that are available through a lending library.

See our Meetings page for more details on our regular monthly meetings.

Got a new telescope for the holidays? Still have one collecting dust at the back of your closet? If you'd like to learn more about your telescope bring it on down to the Helena Astronomical Society's annual "Meet Your Telescope" workshop and we will have folks there to answer your questions, show you how to use it...or just help you set it up!
