Welcome to the home of the Heart of the Valley Astronomers in the central Willamette Valley of Oregon. We are a group of amateur astronomers dedicated to sharing our passions for the
night sky with the local community. The group meets on the second Tuesday of each month at the Scott Zimbrick Memorial Fire Station 5, 4950 NW Fair Oaks Drive, Corvallis, OR 97330. We also regularly schedule star parties, technical assistance
and educational outreach for public and private groups. Send an email to the club for outreach information.
