“It has been said that astronomy is a humbling and character-building experience. There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world.
To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we’ve ever known.”
The mission of the South Texas Astronomical Society is to enlighten, connect, and engage the local community through astronomy and space science outreach.
To connect local experts to community members with shared interests in space and science,
To foster a stronger sense of community throughout the Rio Grande Valley through the cosmic perspective, and
To cultivate interest in science, technology, research, engineering, art, and mathematics (STREAM) through the medium of space exploration.
