Established in 1949, the Fort Worth Astronommical Society (FWAS) is one of the first adult amateur astronomy clubs formed in the country, and we are one of the largest, with an actve membership of over 200.
Our members have a wide range of experience from beginners to professional astronomers. Historically, FWAS has taken a positive and active role in sharing our expertise and time with the public. We conduct numerous star parties and astronomy-related presentations for local schools, clubs, and other organizations throughout the year as part of our public outreach.
We invite and encourage our members to participate in the many activities we have to offer. Helping out with star parties and our active young astronomer group, serving as a club officer, organizing public events, and contributing to the monthly newsletter are just a few of the ways you can get involved. The best part is no experience is required. A simple desire to help is all the experience you need.
