OTHER INFORMATION

The Cape Fear Astronomical Society (CFAS) of Wilmington, North Carolina was founded in 1983. We are a nonprofit organization dedicated to the advancement of amateur astronomy.

We hold meetings on the first Sunday of every month (second Sunday, if the first falls on a holiday weekend). Our programs start at 7:45 p.m. which include presentations in astronomy and space science given by members and guest speakers. The meetings are free, and open to the public.

Several times a month we meet for viewing sessions and special astronomical events at various dark sky sites, away from the light pollution of Wilmington's skies.
