The Brigham Young University Astronomical Society is a student-run organization under the direction of the Department of Physics and Astronomy.

We present Friday Night Planetarium shows in the Royden G. Derrick Planetarium located in the Eyring Science Center. In addition to weekly shows we host monthly star parties in the mountains east of Provo and other outreach and educational activities.

Membership in the society is open to anyone with an interest in astronomy, stargazing, planetariums, telescopes, or staying up late. For membership information, see our membership page.

Weekly Activities:

  • Friday Night Planetarium shows (7pm and 8pm, tickets $2 at the door)
  • Friday Night Sky Observation on the ESC Observing Deck after each Planetarium show (weather permitting)

Upcoming Activities:

  • Our next activity will be our Opening Social on Tuesday 2 February 2016 at 6:30pm in the Pendulum Court, Eyring Science Center. We will start with some food and socializing, and then go upstairs and watch a planetarium show.

  • Our first Star Party will be in Big Springs Park again on Saturday 6 February 2016 at 7:00pm. For club members who would like to carpool with us to the site we will meet in the Eyring Science Center in room N485 at 6:00pm.
