About Us

The Astronomical Society of Long Island meets ALMOST every Wednesday night at the Vanderbilt Planetarium, at 8:00 PM. We also broadcast our meetings on Zoom. SOME meetings are ONLY ON ZOOM and then we don’t meet at the planetarium. BE SURE AND CHECK THE SCHEDULE under “Upcoming Programs” to make sure we are meeting in person before driving out to the Vanderbilt Planetarium.

There is no requirement to join the club in order to attend meetings or to come to our observing sessions. We are a group of dedicated amateur astronomers and telescope makers with a passion for our hobby. We welcome new visitors, you do not need to own a telescope, and we only ask that you come with an excitement to explore the wonders of the night sky. Please come join us at our meetings and enjoy viewing through our telescopes at our observing sessions.
