I am an amateur astronomer and love to go to the public viewing night at the James C. Veen Observatory. I am not a member of the GRAAA, but If you are a member of the GRAAA and want to take over this meetup group please contact me.
The Grand Rapids Amateur Astronomical Association includes individuals with wide levels of expertise and knowledge of the science of Astronomy, from the beginner to professional. For over fifty years the GRAAA continues to flourish, due to the enthusiasm and dedication of its members.
The GRAAA is active in the local community, sponsoring many observing and educational sessions for the people of West Michigan.
A 501(c)(3) non-profit educational and scientific organization dedicated to advancing the study of astronomy and promoting astronomy and science education to the community.
