  • Next club meeting: Friday, September 14th, 7:30 pm (6/8/2018) by lfaltz

    We take the summer off. Our WAA tradition is to start the fall meeting series with Members’ Night. WAA’ers present talks on their astronomy travels, equipment, imaging techniques and observing experiences. It’s our most popular meeting and a great way to start off the academic year.
