LVAAS - THE LEHIGH VALLEY AMATEUR ASTRONOMICAL SOCIETY: Promoting, Facilitating and Teaching Astronomy Since 1957

Welcome to LVAAS, Anonymous
Saturday, September 21 2019 @ 08:07 pm EDT

We are now offering selected sections of the Girl Scout (Brownie) Sky Search, and Girl Scout (Intermediate) Space Exploration IP, along with selected sections of the BSA Cub Scout Belt Loop and Cub Scout Academics Pin (see links above).
These programs are currently being held on a first come, first serve basis. Programs are held once a month at 7:00pm and typically take an hour for the younger scouts, and two hours for older scouts. All programs are held at our South Mountain facility located in Allentown Pa.
Please note that our facility can only handle 30 people maximum during the planetarium show, so plan accordingly.
The following information should be distributed to your group before the day of your event:
·         Adequate adult supervision is required for your group at all times.  LVAAS volunteers are not responsible for the supervision of the scouts or other visitors.
·         Persons under seven years old should not attend, this includes siblings.
·         Leave all flashlights, light-up sneakers, etc., at home. In astronomy, light destroys the experience for others.
·         All cell phones must be on silent and should not be answered or checked during the program. They should be kept in pocket or purse because they light up. See above.
·         No running or horseplay on LVAAS property. We do most of our work in the dark, and there are dangerous trip hazards and expensive pieces of equipment about.
