Welcome to the Buffalo Astronomical Association

The BAA is an organization composed of people from all walks of life who share a passion for the night sky and the science of astronomy. Though our individual interests are diverse, we have in common a goal to foster science education and an appreciation of astronomy and to this end we pledge our talents and resources. .

"For more than seventy years, a meeting place for Western New Yorkers who share in common a love for the wonders of the universe."
