The Amateur Astronomers Association of New York was organized in 1927 to promote the study of Astronomy, emphasizing its cultural and inspirational value.
Astronomy can be as bewildering as it is entrancing. Missions to bodies in the solar system, planets orbiting distant stars, black holes and other exotic objects, and the very future of the universe, all seem to be in a state of flux with all the discoveries being made and theories being put forth these days.
The Amateur Astronomers Association helps members and the public keep up with this exciting field in a variety of ways:
The AAA underwrites its own lecture series at the American Museum of Natural History. Free of charge, anyone can attend a talk given by a scientist at the forefront of research.
The club offers very economical introductory classes in astronomy and astrophysics.
