The Brazos Valley Astronomy Club held a number of star parties and Messier Marathons over the years. Mark Spearman, member and past president of BVAC, generously donated the use of his personal observatory on numerous occasions.
Appropriately named the Regina Caelorum Observatory, it is located on beautiful acreage in rural Brazos County. Members take their telescopes, binoculars, and cameras to the events and share fellowship, knowledge, and equipment.
The following photos were taken at different events in the past. Photos from individual star parties will be added throughout the year.
