The Great American Eclipse

on Aug. 21, 2017

The M.A.S. has received many requests to have representatives to be available at eclipse events here in Memphis. Unfortunately, most of us are going to the path of Totality.

See our plans to go to totaliy here

If you are going to be stuck here in Memphis, here are some things you should know about the eclipse.

Eclpse Information

We are out of Solar Eclipse Glasses - Sorry!

The Eclipse Glasses we had were manufactured by our good friends at

American Paper Optics in Bartlett, TN

If you can't find solar filter glasses don't forget that pin-hole projection will work great too!

Get Mooned!

About the M.A.S.

The Memphis Astronomical Society is a non-profit, public service organization promoting interest and education in astronomy and related sciences. Founded in 1953

The Memphis Astronomical Society, or M.A.S., is a public service organization which promotes understanding of the science of astronomy through free public lectures and demonstrations. Members are seldom professional astronomers. We work in many different occupations, some in the sciences, but most in other fields. We are amateurs in the basic sense of the word: we study astronomy because we love it. We seek to learn more about it through reading, conversation with other astronomers, professional as well as amateur, and especially through direct observation of celestial objects.
