Dark Sky Observing at North-South Lake: Members Only

September 27 - September 29

The Amateur Astronomers Association has a New York State Department of Environmental Conservation Permit (TRP) that allows the club to have observing sessions at North-South Lake, located in Haines Falls, New York. This is an exceptionally dark location for deep-sky observing. Our agreement allows only club members to participate. To join AAA, click here: https://aaa.org/join/

NOTE: The Primary weekend date for Observing sessions is Saturday. Sunday and even Friday night are optional as per the Event Coordinator(s) discretion. Event Coordinator(s), the ones with their names on the NYS DEC permit, must be present for an event to occur. All dates are weather permitting. Carpooling is suggested.

There is a special Dark Sky Observing Google Group that members can use to communicate for an upcoming observing session and to share photos after each event.


If you are an AAA member but do not yet have access to this group, please contact [email protected]

If you have general questions, please contact one of our event chairs at [email protected]

See our North/South Lake Campground page for more information.
