Upcoming Monthly Meetings on Zoom

Tuesday, October 25, 7:00 pm
Tuesday, November 29, 7:00 pm

We will continue to use this format for monthly meetings for now. A week or two before each meeting, members will receive an email announcement with a link that will allow them to connect to the online meeting.

Just click the link or copy and paste in your browser and that will connect you to the meeting. You can do this on any device that has an internet connection and a browser.  You can do this on a smart phone. You can display yourself if you like with your selfie camera on your device. If you don’t that’s okay, don’t feel you have to.

You can also dial in to the meeting. The number and password will be given in the announcement.

Upcoming Observing Events

Members with telescopes are needed for these public outreach events. If the weather looks questionable for an observing event, check the ASNH website after 4:00pm. There will be a scrolling message on the home page if an event has been cancelled.
