The September 27th Lunar Eclipse
The BAA will host the public to observe the Lunar Eclipse on Sunday night, September 27 from a variety of locations around Western NY. Join us at Woodlawn Beach at an event co-sponsored with Assemblyman Sean Ryan. We will also be out at Beaver Meadow Observatory and at Wilson Star Search. Bring a scope to share or just come and enjoy the event. If skies cooperate, it will be spectacular!
SEE IT THROUGH campaign at BMoSMuseum of Science‘s annual fundraiser, renamed this year as the Solar Soiree. We shared views through our telescopes from the rooftop observatory. This year’s event was a kick-off for the See It Through capital campaign to restore the rooftop domed observatory as a center for solar science. BAA members are assisting the museum in the plans for the new facility which expects to see first light in late spring 2016. Keep an eye out for news and updates on this exciting project!
