Welcome to the Litchfield Hills Amateur Astronomy Club
The LHAAC promotes the enjoyment of amateur astronomy through public star parties, education, and meetings. We host 10 public star parties each year at White Memorial Conservation Center in Litchfield, Connecticut. Most star parties begin with a talk on an interesting topic, followed by a discussion of what’s visible tonight. Then, if the weather is cooperative, we do some star and planet gazing. All are welcome. No prior knowledge of astronomy is required – just curiosity.
NOTE: Please see our COVID-19 response page for further details on star parties and talks.
On request, we also do stargazing events and presentations for libraries, schools, scout groups and community service organizations. You can get in touch via our contact page. The club meets on the second Friday of each month except July at 7:30pm at Center Congregational Church, located at 155 Main Street in Torrington, CT, usually in Room 24 or 23. Visitors are always welcome. (During the pandemic we are meeting on Zoom.)
