Student Life

Astral Society

The Astral Society provides a space for the amateur study of astronomy, space exploration, and related topics. A revival of the original 1930 EMU Astral Society, we grew out of a group of students who enjoy stargazing and spotting satellites. On a clear night, you might find us on top of the EMU Hill, staring up at the sky. 

What we do

The Astral Society organizes activities related to astronomy, from dark sky night hikes to trips to the JMU planetarium. We're an inclusive club and welcome people of all interest levels!
