The Big Bear Valley Astronomical Society (BBVAS) is a group of individuals from all walks of life and all levels of knowledge that have come together to share the joy, wonder and science of Astronomy among themselves and with the general public. Since 1991, BBVAS has been the organization in the Big Bear Lake area for all things astronomical. We represent+ and welcome all levels of astronomers in the Big Bear Valley from rank beginner on up. The only requirement is a desire to further your appreciation and understanding of this Universe in which we live.

Big Bear Valley is blessed with very good conditions for astronomy. The high altitude gives us very good transparency and, considering our proximity to the population centers in the L.A. basin, relatively dark skies. It is no coincidence that both the Big Bear Solar Observatory and the Riverside Telescope Maker's Conference have called Big Bear home for the past several decades.

BBVAS meets monthly on the second Thursday of the month at Denny's 41196 Big Bear Blvd Big Bear Lake at 6:00PM. We also hold monthly star parties, normally on the weekend closest to new moon.
