In the interest of everyone’s health and the reduction of spread of Coronavirus, WAA group activities have been suspended until further notice.

There will be no WAA Star Parties or WAA Lectures until clearance has been obtained. Speakers will be rescheduled for a later date. The WAA member picnic has been postponed until later in the year.

WAA members can continue to arrange observing visits on their own to Ward Pound Ridge Reservation by following the instructions for giving notice to the Parks Department on your membership card. Be sure to ascertain that the park will be open before traveling.

Two websites for on-line viewing by amateurs are https://www.nightskiesnetwork.com/ and https://www.nightskiesnetwork.ca/There are  a number of others.

NEAF (Northeast Astronomy Forum) has been postponed, although there may be videoconferenced speakers on April 4. Click this link for more information as it becomes available. This is all the information we have at this time.
