Outreach and Education


One of the purposes of the AAAP is to educate the public about the wonders of the universe over our heads through our lecture series and outreach program.

Our astronomers setup telescopes for public use at Communiversity in Princeton, Super Science Saturday at the NJ State Museum in Trenton and at various public events around Mercer County. We will bring telescopes to your school or educational event to show and explain objects in the night sky like the Moon, constellations, planets, nebulae and galaxies.

If you prefer a daytime event, we can also show the Sun safely through special filters on our telescopes. Contact the Outreach Chair to arrange a free star party.
