ASSNE March Meeting (Speakers & Stargazing)

  • This location is shown only to members

The Astronomical Society of Southern New England hosts a monthly meeting on the second Saturday each month at the Carpenter Museum in Rehoboth, MA. Members of the public are invited to attend. These meetings generally feature one or two speakers on astronomy and astrophotography topics, as well as reports from members on observing projects, new scopes, etc. After the meeting, we set up telescopes and observe in the adjacent field, if weather conditions permit.

For the March meeting, ASSNE member Pete Peterson will give a talk on his home observatory (where he also teaches beginners): "A Night at Wishing Star Observatory."

As parking/seating is limited, please RSVP only if you  definitely will attend. This is a good opportunity to bring a scope you would like to learn how to use, to ask questions about astronomy or telescopes, and if the weather is good, do some observing through different telescopes and binoculars.

    Interesting, although sometimes technical, presentation on detecting near-earth asteroids and an exoplanet orbiting the star 51 Pegasi. Good discussion afterwards. Somewhat clear outside for observing.

    So glad Rebekah started this Meet-up page. She is also top notch at the outreach events we do.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
