The Rio Rancho Astronomical Society began in 1998 as an astronomy club with Rio Rancho High School.  Soon after its founding the club expanded to become an public club, independent of the high school.  Over the years, we have grown and expanded, with new members coming and going, to the current public club we are today.  We are open to all types of members, from beginning astronomers to seasoned veterans.   And no, you don't need to be a master observer or even own a telescope to join.  All you need are a good pair of eyes and willingness to learn.

Upcoming Club Events
Saturday, May 11th,  6:00 PM
National Astronomy Day!

Come and join the RRAS as we celebrate National Astronomy Day at the Rainbow Park Observatory.  Activities start at 6:00 PM with solar observing and other activities.  Hamburgers, hotdogs, and drinks will be served for a donation.  Also, various items will be up for bid at a silent auction.  At 8:00 pm, special guest speaker, Dr. Larry Crumpler, will give a talk on Mars.
