Renew Your Membership, Get Your Solar Glasses

2023 was a year of growth for the Warren County Astronomical Society. We have 56 members who joined and participated as we’ve added monthly programs open to the public and started member-only events.

We hope you continue to enjoy them and that they are helpful to your pursuit of our shared astronomy hobby. Even if you’re a casual observer of the night sky, everyone is welcome; we intend to provide more ways for you to have fun under the stars.

Your annual membership fees help us pay for insurance, maintenance, and repairs and purchase new astronomy equipment. So we ask you to renew your membership – or to become a member – in February.

We’ve set up a new online payment system that enables members to renew on the anniversary of when they joined WCAS. Most members are up for renewal. If you have questions, contact Marge Batten, our membership director, at
