Club Meetings

Due to ongoing state restrictions on group meeting sizes, we’re now holding club board meetings via Zoom; if you would like to join a meeting, please let the club secretary know at We also have an active Discord server where club members communicate about ongoing projects and observing (see here to join)

Star Parties and Talks

Our host White Memorial Conservation center has suspended all in-person talk and presentations so normal club lectures with star parties after will be paused until further notice. We are continuing to do talks via Facebook live (see our May talk here) and will be experimenting with doing live in-person star parties this month, if we can effectively manage this (sanitizing equipment between visitors or using video capture devices) while maintaining the wonder of looking at the night sky, then we will resume star parties only, at WMCC. Please stay tuned to our site and Facebook page for updates.
