Welcome to the Yampa Valley Astronomy Club home page.
YVAC was founded in Jan. 2005 by avid amateur astronomers in Steamboat Springs and the greater Yampa valley. The club has been created to serve astronomers of all ages and experience levels. With dark skies, clear nights, and stable seeing, the Yampa valley is an incredible place to stare up into space for hours on end.
We are part of the Western Colorado Astronomy Net (WCAN) See the link below. All are welcome to browse their sites & attend events of interest. Contact Carol for WCAN's latest combined Astronomy Club Schedule.
