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.
