GAAC’s Welcome to Amateur Astronomy Night!


Friday night, April 14, from 8:00 pm to 9:30 is the Gloucester Area Astronomy Club’s “Welcome to Amateur Astronomy Night.”

This annual event is always a favorite. We’ll be featuring a group of quick, ten-minute presentations on topics of interest to anyone interested in pursuing astronomy, as well as a roomful of different binoculars and telescopes to inspect and ask questions about, and all the great conversation and goodies you’ve come to associate with GAAC meetings.

You’ll be able to find out more about what you need to get started, how to do astrophotography, places to shop and how much to spend, what you’ll be able to see, the advantages of different telescope optical designs and brands, and much more. And we’ll be raffling off a really nice pair of binoculars!

It all happens at 8:00 pm on Friday April 14th, at the Lanesville Community Center, 8 Vulcan St. in Lanesville. All are welcome, there’s plenty of free parking, and there is no cost. No special knowledge is required to have a great time. See you there!
