About our Society
The Astronomical Society of Eastern Missouri (ASEM) is an Astronomy
club designed to put fun and passion into astronomy. We are based in St.
Charles County, Missouri, and draw heavily from the St. Louis Metro area. Our
members range in age from 8 to 85 and we all “love” Astronomy. We are very
family friendly. We love to “share the view” through our public outreach and
education programs, our meetings, our special interest groups (SIGs), our
events, our relationships with other area clubs and national organizations, and
sometimes just with each other while under the stars. While you are at this
website, we trust you will get a feeling for our fun with, and passion about,
ASEM Membership Benefits. Becoming a member provides you with the ability to borrow an ASEM club telescope. A variety of instruments for any skill-level and ability are available for you to use. New Member Info including membership application.
