The Amateur Astronomers Association holds observing sessions in the Bronx when the Moon is in the evening sky. We observe on the second Wednesday and Thursday of every month from April through October. (For information about the Moon’s phases, please click here.)
For Wednesday we meet on the northwest corner of West 235th Street and Johnson Avenue. This location is easily accessible via the Bx10 and Bx20 buses. If traveling by subway, take the No. 1 train to West 231st Street and transfer to the bus. Get off the bus at West 235th Street and walk two blocks east to Johnson Avenue.
Observing begins one-half hour after sunset. Setup will be at sunset. We encourage anyone wishing to bring a telescope or binoculars to do so. If you’d like to participate, please contact John Benfatti ahead of time and let him know you’ll be coming.
