Sheep Hill Astronomical Association


Open House at the observatory has been cancelled until further notice due to COVID-19-related restrictions on public gatherings.


SHAA began in the mid 1960's as the Booth Astronomical Association, named after Les Booth, a former Boonton High School principal. Booth taught night classes on astronomy and after he retired, his former students got together with him and formed the organization.
