The The United Astronomy Clubs of New Jersey provides free public programs from April through Oct. on Saturday evenings.
An astronomy presentation begins at 8 pm in the lecture hall regardless of the weather and is followed by stargazing on the observatory's telescopes until 10:30 pm, weather permitting. All programs are held at the UACNJ Observatory in Jenny Jump State Forest.
Groups are always welcome at our Saturday night programs; please contact us in advance if you wish to bring a group of more than 10 people. We suggest a donation of $50 or $2 per person for groups on Saturday nights during the public season.
Programs on other nights can be arranged with advance notice. Please email [email protected] for details. For these special programs, which require additional staffing and extra use of our facilities, a donation of at least $2 per person is suggested, with a minimum of $50 for a group.
