Our membership is very active. Here are some examples of what we do:

  • Host sky viewing sessions (weather permitting)
  • Invite lecturers from academia, amateur community, and club members
  • Offer educational outreach to schools, libraries, and scouts
  • Present on astronomy, space science, telescopes, and telescope making
  • Get together on a weekly basis for socializing and sharing knowledge
  • Steward a statewide adopt-a-library telescope program

Our club is a registered charity with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts (MGL chapter 180) and the United States Internal Revenue Service (501(c)(3) IRS code).  We maintain our bylaws (see Aldrich Astronomical Society, Inc. ByLaws as of 9/12/2016) and other filings with the Secretary of the Commonwealth and Office of the Massachusetts Attorney General. Donations are tax deductible.
