“Observing Extrasolar Planet Transits with Small Aperture Telescopes”

AAA Lecture Series[masked]

The Amateur Astronomers Association is proud to present an astronomy lecture series from October through May each year for our members and the public. Everyone is welcome to attend. Admission to the lecture is free, and no reservations or tickets are required. The lectures are held at the Kaufmann Theater of the American Museum of Natural History, on Central Park West between 77th and 81st streets. Please use the 77th Street entrance. Lectures begin at 6:15 p.m. and run to 8:00 p.m.

Meetup friends will group up in the 4th and 5th rows on house right. Afterwards, we'll go across the street to Shake Shack for a burger and a beer!

    I don't see anyone from the group in the theater. I'm in a pink shirt, blue sweater sitting in the 5th row on extreme right side.

    I'm guessing the group's waiting in the lobby?
