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. 
Subscription is Free! and open to anyone.

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.

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.
  • 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.

The TAA is a non-profit organization that only exists through the help of our members and sponsors. Invest in your local community. Any donation helps.
