Welcome to the Imperial Polk County Astronomical Society website! We are a group of amateur astronomers in Central Florida, dedicated to informing and educating the public about the art and science of astronomy. Come join us at one of our monthly “Astronomy Nights,” located at one of several state and municipal parks here in Polk County.

Another fun event at Sun ‘n Fun. And it’s another family event. Something for everyone. So, what will we be doing?
We’ll be there with our scopes pointed at the Sun for some Solar viewing. Again, with the new Solar cycle ramping up, let’s hope for some nice Sunspots and a prominence or flare or two (or more).
Sun ‘n Fun’s Educational Dept. wants you to take a trip “Around the World”. “Stations” will be set up representing different countries around the world, showcasing Science, Technologies, Engineering and Math contributions from those countries. We’ll introduce you to contributions from the U.S. You won’t want to miss this.
We “get around” to several different venues and events during the year. We hope to see you at as many of these events as you can come to.
