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 BAS meetings or by mail (cheque or cash). Cheques should be made out to Bluewater Astronomical Society. For information on mailing instructions, send us an email via the Contact us page including Membership in the subject. For any membership purchased via mail, be sure to include your name, mailing address, email and phone number.
