The Astronomical Society of Southeast Texas (also known as ASSET) is a non-profit organization. We are a friendly group of amateur astronomers from the Golden Triangle in Texas, including Jefferson, Hardin, Jasper, Newton, and Orange counties.
OUR NEXT MEETING WILL BE ON SEPTEMBER 12TH, 2014 AT THE Murry J. Frank Planetarium in Beaumont
Our meetings are always held on the second Friday of each month at 7:00 pm.
All ages are welcome.
If you have an interest in astronomy, come check us out!
Visitors are always welcome to join us at meetings and star parties!
-On the Saturday closest to the first quarter moon, we meet at
Claiborne West State Park. This is a great place to enjoy the night skies away from city lights.
-On the Saturday closest to the new moon, we meet near Town Bluff, Texas. A little further out of the city and some of the best skies in East Texas!
If you need more information on when the first quarter or new moon is, please check The Sky Tonight! Link.
If you would like to visit a Star Party, contact us for directions and times (weather permitting)! Visitors are always welcome to the star parties!
