Ah, Summer! Our next meeting is Sept. 9th
What to do this summer Join the BAA!
We get a lot of calls asking for help with telescopes… What is the best scope to buy? How do I use the scope I got for Christmas? What eyepieces should I use to see saturn? We always welcome questions. Our #1 favorite question is “What is the best thing to purchase for a family hooked on astronomy?” because the answer is so easy. A membership in the BAA is the best purchase you can make. For $30 you get a rural observatory, a wealth of resources and a community of great people from all walks of life who enjoy nothing more than talking telescopes and helping other members feel at home with their equipment and the wonders of the night sky. It’s as easy as a mouse click…
See it Through at BMoS Gets a Boost
This news just in from the Buffalo Museum of Science…. the See It Through campaign to restore the rooftop Observatory and the fourth floor astronomy studio has received a half million dollar check from Erie County. County Executive Mark Poloncarz was on hand to announce the support and to share his personal excitement to help make astronomy experience a reality again for all of Western New York in 2017. Keep an eye on this space for the latest developments.
Beaver Meadow Observatory
Our 2016 “Public Observing Night” Season at Beaver Meadow Observatory is in full swing. We look forward to hosting WNY stargazers of all ages again at the observatory on the 1st Saturday of the month, April through October. All winter club members have continued to enjoy using the equipment and enjoy the dark skies at our North Java site and do so all year round. Contact our observatory Directors to learn how you can join them.Observatory Info
