Who We Are

Welcome to the Sussex County Astronomy Society (SCAS)! We are a group of men, women, and youth in southern Delaware who are passionate about learning more about our universe. Many of us own telescopes, but not all of us - a telescope is certainly not required for you to join us. We have no officers or dues... this is just a society of people with a common interest in astronomy!


Our monthly meetings are held on the 1st Thursday of most months at the Milton Library. Please check our calendar to confirm meeting dates, times, and presentations. Our meetings cover all aspects of astronomy, including the night sky, telescope use, astrophotography, and other topics related to space and the universe. Our society is open to the public.


We are associated with the local non-profit astronomy outreach foundation, the Delmarva Space Sciences Foundation (DSSF), and most of our public outreach events are done in conjunction with the DSSF. In place of dues, we urge you to consider contacting the DSSF and making a donation towards their outreach efforts. Society members also frequently get together to stargaze and do astrophotography amongst ourselves... public events don't allow the privacy needed to do more serious study and photography of the night sky.


The SCAS was founded in 2000 by Brian Brengel.


Whether you are an expert astronomer, you just got your first telescope, or you just love learning about space, we hope you will come and join us!
