About Us

The Tunisian Astronomical Society (S.A.T.) is a non-governmental scientific organization, founded in 1990 by a group of amateur astronomers. Its main objectives are to introduce Astronomy concepts to the Tunisian public and to supervise students in their academic research. SAT members who are merely unpaid volunteers (mostly students) meet regularly in order to study Astronomy, observe the sky and organize events that aim to simplify and popularize Astronomy, especially among teenagers all over the country, for free!

Among the SAT's main work strategies are the creation of regional Astronomy clubs and the introduction of astronomy courses to the official curriculum in primary and high schools and also at university level by providing the necessary human and material resources to the students for their academic research. The SAT publishes and translates into Arabic multiple scientific documents such as Tunisia’s yearly sky Ephemeris, besides it organizes and supervises different scientific seminars, conferences, workshops, internships, etc. The SAT is the official representative of the Charlie Bates Solar Astronomy Project in Tunisia. The CBSAP is a worldwide solar astronomy outreach program that takes observatory quality telescopes and cameras to regional schools in order to teach our youth about the Sun and its many interesting features.
