The Delaware Valley Amateur Astronomers is a group of enthusiastic

of telescopes and see astronomical wonders most people have never
seen. We often look at faraway galaxies, star clusters, and nebulae,
as well as things closer to home such as the moon and planets. The
telescopes and equipment belong to DVAA members. Star Parties are a
public service of the DVAA and are free. Star parties are cancelled if
the weather is cloudy or rainy. For more information, e-mail DVAA
Observing Chair Al Lamperti at al@dvaa.org.
