Who we are

The Space and Nature Aruba (SNA) is a non-profit group based on the Caribbean island Aruba which is located a few miles North of the coast of Venezuela. The SNA group is affiliated with Universe Awareness (UNAWE) which is an organization endorsed by UNESCO and the International Astronomical Union (IAU).

The SNA Facebook page is used for day to day communication about stargazing sessions, earth science/ astronomy lectures and other general information that develops between the time of our regular meetings.

Our members come from a wide variety of backgrounds with a broad spectrum of many interests in astronomy, astrophotography, earth science, and other related areas.

Our goal

Our main goal is to bring astronomy and earth science to the public through education, research and enjoyable public events, and improve the status, understanding and enjoyment of amateur astronomy and earth science.
