Observe with AAA

Looking to see the stars and sky in the New York area? Come join us at a FREE observing event, open to all! Our members set up their telescopes all over the city throughout the year. We provide instruction on how to find objects in the night sky. If you’re thinking of getting binoculars or a telescope yourself, this is a good opportunity to look at and through some equipment and ask questions of experienced users.

Find us at a NYC park near you and join AAA for more observing opportunities like dark sky, solar, eclipses & out of town trips.
