Welcome to the ACL Calendar of Events.
Due to the COVID-19 virus
all ACL activities have been suspended.
- Everyone is welcome to attend club meetings and
If you are passing through town, have an interest in astronomy, or just want to look through a telescope, then please join us.
- Star parties are weather-permitting events, and the
number of club members attending can vary a great
deal due to a variety of reasons. We can't guarantee
you will find anyone there even if it's on our calendar.
If you are participating for the first time, it is
best to coordinate with a club member that is going.
- Star Parties usually start just before sunset.
- Star party etiquette should be followed as much as possible.
Bright lights ruin night vision, so try to get there before
it gets dark and use a red flashlight or keep flashlights off.
