“Celebrating San Francisco Amateur Astronomer’s 70th Anniversary”


Join us as long-time members of SFAA share their experiences with the founding of our  organization, focused on bringing astronomy to a wide amateur audience. Members and the public enjoyed star parties, lectures and telescope making, then at the Wallace Telescope Makers Workshop. The very first lecture was held at the Josephine D. Randall Museum in October 1952. It was an exciting time in the Bay Area for astronomical learning.
