About

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.

*Ownership of a telescope is not a requirement for membership.

Night Sky 45 was formed primarily as a viewing club, allowing people who share an interest in astronomy and related topics to join with others to share knowledge and observing experiences.

Monthly meetings are held in Chemeketa Community College Planetarium on the first Wednesday of the month, 7:30PM.

While not a requirement for membership, we encourage members to share their interests and knowledge with members of the local community to further the enjoyment and understanding of astronomy and related topics.

Come share the magic of the universe with us.
