Fort Bend Astronomy Club Home PageFBAC logo

The Fort Bend Astronomy Club is a non-profit organization dedicated to the acquisition and dissemination of information pertaining to the science of Astronomy. Located in Stafford, Texas, FBAC's goal is to serve not only our members, but the general public as well. FBAC members hail from all corners of Harris, Fort Bend, Waller, and Brazoria counties.

The mission of the Fort Bend Astronomy Club is observing, sharing, teaching, and promoting astronomy. We pride ourselves in our outreach efforts to schools, public, and private entities through our Astronomy on Wheels program, as well as providing expertise and volunteers to the George Observatory located at Brazos Bend State Park.

For over 30 years, we have engaged with over 200,000 people, and contributed to the scientific astronomy community, using our club-owned 18-inch aperture Newtonian reflector that is located in the East Dome of the Houston Museum of Natural Science's George Observatory.  We are currently conducting a fundraising effort to secure the future of our mission at the George Observatory by replacing the current telescope with more modern and maintainable equipment. To learn more about our work at the George Observatory, and how you can help, please visit our East Dome fundraising webpage

FBAC holds monthly club meetings, which are open to the public, we have a mentoring network, and members regularly get together to observe at the George Observatory.

The next scheduled FBAC club meeting will be held at the Houston Community College Southwest Campus.
