Message From AAA’s President – August 2021

Happy August everyone!

A recent National Geographic headline proclaimed that more tourists than ever are vacationing to dark-sky sights. It brought a smile to my face to know that presumably more and more people are interested in the cosmos and looking up, rather than looking down (at their phones). And of course, enabling people to look up is exactly the mission of the Amateur Astronomers Association of New York.

In order to advance our cause, stay tuned for some very exciting initiatives… a telescope loaner program in conjunction with the New York Public Library? A new website? A new lecture series? Possibly! But I certainly would not want to ruin any of the surprises that we have in store.

You can rest assured that the Board, the Executive Committee, the members, and all of the volunteers involved with AAA are working hard to bring you an even better experience with the organization.

If you are not a member, please consider becoming one. If you are a member, please consider volunteering.

Stay safe, enjoy the remainder of summer, and thank you for being a part of all that we do!
