The Big Sky Astronomical Society is an amateur astronomy organization based in High River, Alberta, Canada. We have a small observatory that is situated under a dark sky. This observatory is located about halfway between Calgary and Lethbridge.
Although we only have a small number of members and rather limited resources, we work very hard to promote a greater appreciation and awareness of astronomy in our local area and beyond.
We are a registered charitable organization and as such we rely on donations and grants to sustain and expand our operations. If you would like to help us with our educational objectives, you can do so by making a donation. All donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
