The Gloucester Area Astronomy Club hosts their annual 'Welcome to Astronomy' meeting at the Lanesvill Community Center! This annual event is always a crowd favorite. We’ll be featuring an even half-dozen quick, ten-minute presentations on topics of interest to anyone interested in pursuing astronomy, as well as a roomful of different scopes 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 photography, the upcoming transit of Mercury, what you need to get started, places to shop and how much to spend, what you’ll be able to see, the advantages of different optical designs and brands, and much much more.
GAAC meets on the second Friday of every month at the Lanesville Community Center. No telescope is necessary, just an interest in what’s going on out there. Meetings are free and open to everyone, and presentations are suitable for the general public.
