National Astronomy Day News

Our Inaugural Meeting was held on Saturday, April 28th, 2001, at the Aurora Public Library in Aurora, Colorado. It was decided by the charter members that we would meet from now on, every Wednesday on or before the Full Moon.

We will start out being a low-key organization—no officers, no by-laws, and no dues. Just Astronomy, observing, and comraderie.
