Westchester Amateur Astronomers

P.O. Box 44

We are a not-for-profit organization open to people of all ages with the desire to learn more about astronomy and who share an interest in viewing the universe. We range from enthusiastic amateurs and educators to casual stargazers and families.

Starway to Heaven is our monthly observing night, co-sponsored by the Westchester County Department of Parks, Recreation and Conservation, and is conducted at the Meadow Picnic Area of Ward Pound Ridge Reservation, Cross River.

Twice a year we meet for Moon over Hastings at historic Draper Observatory Cottage, Hastings Historical Society. Other events (including the occasional lunar eclipse, comet and meteor shower) are scheduled throughout the year.
