Welcome to the Deerlick Astronomy Village home page.
The Deerlick Astronomy Village, DAV, is a unique planned community catering to the specific needs of amateur and professional astronomers.
DAV is located in the very darkest skies in Sharon Georgia, far away from big city lights but at the same time convenient to many major metropolitan areas in the South Eastern USA.

It’s time for the Annual Picnic at Deerlick Astronomy Village! Please join us in the pavilion on Grier’s Field on Sunday, May 24th, 2015 at 5 PM for a great potluck meal. Solar telescopes will be set up near the pavilion in the late afternoon, weather permitting. Picnic guests may enjoy free camping under the stars on Sunday evening. This event is open to anyone interested in stargazing under dark skies at DAV.
The Deer Lick Group, LLC is the organization that is making this all possible. This group consists of investment members with a common interest in Astronomy and a drive to see this vision come to fruition.
It is the goals of this group to:
1) Build a community that encourages individual ownership of land plots for observatories and home sites
2) Support the needs of amateur astronomers by leasing observatory area sites (currently all sites are occupied),
3) Establish a large common observation area to support individual member access, as well as to support various public and private events and
4) Establish common sense covenants and rules to protect the site from light pollution, provide for the safely of observing members, and at the same time, provide a location that is both family friendly and educationally significant.
