About Us The Milwaukee Astronomical Society has a respectable antiquity, dating back to 1932. Among its early members were none other than Walter Scott Houston and Ed Halbach. MAS members are loyal, many retain their membership even when they move out of state. We even have members living in Colorado and Arizona! The Society possesses a fine observatory and has an active observing program. It sponsors special projects to introduce members to various aspects of astronomy and special events which cover one-time observing opportunities. Activities include variable star observing, eclipsing binaries, RR Lyraes, Asteroid Occultations, Lunar Grazes, and much, much more. The club actively promotes hands-on astronomy and public outreach. The observing page provides positional and physical ephemerides of the Sun, Moon, and planets to help members find the planets and interpret what they are seeing. Through the link to SSEC in Madison, you can get satellite pictures of Wisconsin showing cloud cover in daylight and IR at night. The pictures are usually less than fifteen minutes old. New members are always welcome and take advantage of the knowledge gained and shared by more experienced observers. The club possesses several telescopes and three CCD cameras which are available to all members. Many members are avid astrophotographers using film and CCD imaging. Some of the images taken by MAS'ers are displayed in the Showcase.
