The Amateur Astronomers Association of New York (AAA.org) is pleased to invite all members of the NYC Physics and Astronomy Meetup to its Annual Brooklyn Start Party on Wednesday, July 10th at 8:30, weather permitting.
My friend, AAA's & Brooklyn's own Ron McCollough, the Organizer of The Brooklyn Astronomy Meetup will lead stargazers from our Meetup and AAA in AAA's Annual Brooklyn Star Party. If you cannot locate the group.. there will be a representative at the 9th St and Prospect Park West entrance. If you have Astronomy Equipment you would like to bring to the star party, please mention that in your RSVP. If you wish, depending on the number of AAA members who attend, you may be able to get a tutorial on using your gear. We encourage you to bring friends and mingle to make more.
