AAL Facilities

The Astronomy Associates of Lawrence hold an open public observing session at the Baker Wetlands Discovery Center every month during the school year, weather permitting, usually on the last Sunday of the month. The observing takes place as soon as it becomes dark after the monthly meetings of the club, which begin at 7PM. Telescopes owned by members of the club and the 14-inch telescope permanently mounted on site

are set up for direct viewing through an eyepiece or via a video display of the telescope field of view.

Anyone is welcome to come out and share the view and to bring their own scopes that may be sitting around unused. Club members are more than happy to help guide novice observers through the process of setting up and using a scope. If possible, check the Facebook page for the club to learn if an observing session is on or cancelled.
