General Description
Objectives of JAS:
Assembling amateur astronomers in Jordan and the Arab World, in order to develop their astronomical hobby through the exchange of astronomical data, information, articles, and observational expertise, as well as the provision of all what an amateur astronomer may need (e.g. astronomical equipment, periodicals, books, references, ... etc) - if possible.
Popularization of Astronomy, that is, spreading astronomical culture and awareness among all classes of the Community, and ascertaining the importance of astronomy and allied sciences in every-day life, and their inter-relationship with all fields of knowledge (such as mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, geology, environmental sciences, technology, communications, ... and even philosophy !).
Transferring astronomy in Jordan and the Arab World from amateurism to professionalism, and from individual initiatives to institutional frames.
The Jordanian Astronomical Society (JAS) - previously known as the Jordanian Amateur Astronomers Society - was founded in Amman in September 1987. It is temporarily located in Haya Cultural Center, we have about 50 active members in the Society.
