In addition to telescopes set up by AAL members, we will be utilizing the 14" scope permanently housed at the Discovery Center.  Come join the fun and enjoy the dark(er) skies south of town.  A map of the Discovery Center location is below.

MONTHLY MEETINGS - SUMMER 2017

Club Meetings aren't held during the summer time.

Monthly Meetings of the AAL during the school year are held on the same nights as the Sunday Public Observing Sessions, at the Baker Wetlands Discovery Center. The meetings will begin at 7PM and finish in time to allow all attendees to take part in the open observing.  Meetings will take place irrespective of the weather conditions.
