Who We Are
The South Texas Astronomical Society (or STARS) is a Brownsville community-based nonprofit organization focusing on space science research, education, and outreach.
To elevate space science initiatives and connect educators and experts directly to the people who need them most — local students, amateur astronomers, and community members with a shared interest in space.
STARS is a product of the community — comprised of local businesses, organizations, and space enthusiasts that help us achieve our goal of fostering a community through astronomy and space.
We organize and promote astronomy and space science-related community events to educate and engage the public in everything Brownsville has to offer as a Space City.
