Astronomical Society

antThe Morris Museum Astronomical Society (MMAS) was formed over 30 years ago to provide a resource for those in the Northern New Jersey area who have an interest in astronomy.

The society meets for programs on various topics in astronomy at the Morris Museum on the second Thursday of the month from September through June at 7:00PM.

The MMAS also hosts:

  • Regular observing sessions throughout the year.  See our Google calendar.
  • Each spring the MMAS hosts an Astro Day event for families.  For 2019, the date is Saturday, March 16.
  • The MMAS will be participating in the Morris Museum’s National Chemistry week event on Saturday, September 22. Stay tuned for details.
