Bucks-Mont Astronomical Association
The Bucks-Mont Astronomical Association first met at Peace Valley Nature Center in the mid 1980’s. Formed by a group of local amateur astronomers, the organization gathered monthly to share information and techniques among the members. In time, “BMAA” expanded into community star watch events at parks and nature centers throughout Bucks and Montgomery county. To this day, we are challenged to keep up with the ever changing pace of technology in our observing instruments and discoveries out in space. Members pride themselves on the ability to navigate among the stars to reveal the secrets of the night sky in their telescopes. We meet on the 1st Wednesday of each month at 7:30 PM. Meetings are free and open to the general public via Zoom (email firstname.lastname@example.org and request a Zoom link a few days before the meeting). In person meetings (not at the current time) are held in Ambler, PA at Upper Dublin Lutheran Church. Monthly topics and announcements are listed on our website and Facebook pages. www.bma2.org
