China Lake Astronomical Society

What's New

The China Lake Astronomical Society is a place for people who want to learn about, participate in, and share astronomy activities and education. We are based in Ridgecrest and China Lake, CA, in the Indian Wells Valley of the Mojave Desert. We are just over the mountains from Death Valley and some of the darkest skies in the United States.

Meetings are open to the public at the Maturango Museum on the first Monday of every month (except when it falls on a holiday, then we meet the following Monday).

Membership dues are $25. Meetings and events are free and open to the public. All ability levels are welcome.
