The Gloucester Area Astronomy Club
The Gloucester Area Astronomy Club was founded in 2003 as an informal, loosely-structured group. Not all members have telescopes or binoculars, but all share an interest in the night sky. The only club bylaw says that if we ever come up with a formal constitution and bylaws, they have to fit on one side of a standard 3X5 card. GAAC owns no property and there are no dues or fees.
Meetings are held monthly. Some feature speakers from area groups such as the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, or from Astronomy departments at some of the colleges & universities in the greater Boston area, and some meetings are more hands-on events led by local observers. All feature coffee, cocoa, & home-made baked goods.
GAAC members meet at the Lanesville Community Center in the Lanesville neighborhood of Gloucester MA, at 8:00 pm on the second Friday of every month, for presentations, discussions and activities related to observational astronomy. You're invited! See our Contact page for more info.
