To become a member, you only need an interest in stargazing; we will provide the rest. Our meetings are open to the public and you are more than welcome to join us for a few meetings on a trial basis with no obligation. For more information on when and where we meet, click here.

Membership entitles you to attend our meetings, BAS club viewing events, use of a personal rental telescope for a month or two, and access to the ES Fox observatory at various club events. You will also receive six emailed issues (bi-monthly) of StarGazer News, our club newsletter. Its pages are full of astronomy information, updates on club and public events, a monthly sky events calendar to keep you informed of sky happenings and a featured constellation for you to observe in detail. A yearly membership is currently $40 and includes your immediate family. Note that a $40 membership accords you one vote during elections (spouses are welcome under the family category, but only one vote per $40 membership fee).

Memberships are available at club meetings or by mailing a $40 cheque made out to Bluewater Astronomical Society along with your name, mailing address, email and phone number to
