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 2018, the date is Saturday, March 24.  Get details.
