Night Sky 45 is the astronomy club of Salem Oregon.
The site is in the process of moving here and getting an overhaul – stay tuned.
You can also find us on our public Facebook group.
Night Sky 45, a.k.a NS45, met for the first time in April 1999. Our name is derived from our favorite topic, the night sky, and our latitude on the planet, the 45th parallel (latitude).
Night Sky 45 is a non-profit, volunteer organization dedicated to promoting the enjoyment and education of astronomy and related subjects to members and the general public.
Membership is open to anybody interested in astronomy and the night sky, regardless of experience or knowledge.
