NUMBER OF MEMBERS
The Quad Cities Astronomical Society (QCAS) was formed to encourage education, coordinate amateur activities in astronomy, and act as an interpreter of astronomical events for the public in and around the Quad Cities area of Eastern Iowa and Northwestern Illinois.
QCAS is a non-profit corporation made up of members from all walks of life, each sharing a common interest in astronomy. The level of knowledge and experience varies with each individual, from many that just want to learn a little more about the stars, to advanced amateurs and professional astronomers. The Society encourages active learning through frequent observing sessions called “Star Parties”.
