CAA membership is open to the public. There are no special requirements to join, only an interest and desire to learn more about astronomical issues and to share that learning with others.

The CAA is ideally suited for the average person, offering the beginner of all ages opportunities to learn and a way to stay informed of the latest developments in the world’s oldest science.

Our members range from junior high school students to senior citizens. CAA expertise runs the gamut from beginner to the professional astronomer.
