Amateur Astronomers Association
Our mission is to generate interest in science and to increase knowledge of astronomy through the discussion of current astrological events, by attending observations held at local parks in Manhattan or surrounding boroughs as well as planetariums. We will invite guest speakers to our meetings, participate in community events on astronomy, give a ten minute talk on a topic of our interest within the semester, and publish our research in the Eyepiece Newsletter (The official newsletter of the National Amateur Astronomers Association).

Did you ever see Gone with the Wind? Who was Orson Welles and why is Citizen Kane so famous? What are Spaghetti Westerns? Have you heard of Woody Allen? And what about the French Nouvelle Vague (New Wave)? If you don’t know the answer to these questions, maybe you should join the LS Classic Movie Club! Movies will be introduced before and discussed after screening.
