Sheep Hill Astronomical Association


At long last, join us at the observatory this Friday, 11/19/21, for in-person Public Observing Night!

Please note that this event is weather-dependent. We will post any updates here and on Facebook.

To keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible, the following rules will be in place:

  • We are asking all members and visitors to wear a mask

  • We will limit the number of visitors at the scope at one time, but don't worry! We will have some other telescopes set up outside on the grounds of the observatory, so while you wait for your turn at the large scope you can observe astronomical objects through other telescopes as well. 

We hope to see you there!


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.
