CLUB DESCRIPTION

Helping the public "Reach For The Stars"!

Public Nights begin with a welcome by our "Qualified Observers” and a brief historical review of NJAA. This will be followed by an quick overview of the facility.

On the 4th Saturday from March thru October, there is a guest speaker presentation that begins at 8:30PM and will last approximately one hour. After a brief question and answer period, our "QO's" will be giving tours of the facility.

Should you have questions regarding Astronomy or the purchase & use of amateur telescope equipment, any of the "QO's" on duty, will be most helpful and provide you with the guidance you need.

Depending on the weather conditions, several of our telescopes, including the 26 inch which is the largest public telescope in New Jersey, will be open for observing the night sky.

Individual reservations are not required to attend Public Nights…
