Membership

Anyone that loves astronomy and wants to share there interest with others should join the TAA. You do not have to have a telescope or knowledge of astronomy. Registration is Free! and open to anyone. If you wish to upgrade your membership you will have a chance after you register. Without membership fees and donations we could not exist as a club. The TAA is a nonprofit, charitable organization. We do not receive any government money. We depend solely upon donations from individuals and annual membership dues. All donations are tax-deductible.

To join right away, just fill out the membership form. You can pay your dues via Paypal or at the next meeting. Once we receive your dues, your status on the website will be upgraded and you will be enrolled in the Astronomic League.

TAA membership funds our observatory, which provides a place and opportunity for members to:

  • Meet monthly and discuss various topics related to astronomy.
  • Plan astronomical activities and programs.
  • Post articles and observations on our website.
  • Present educational observing programs to the public.

We hold public information and observing sessions at the Arthur Pursell Observatory in Tulare. It is located seven miles south of the city of Tulare. At these sessions we teach the public about the night sky. We show attendees the constellations, talk about the different types of telescopes, and how to look through them.

We hope you will join the TAA and share your interest in astronomy with us. We look forward to meeting you.
