Prelude to the Lunar Eclipse

See this object turn color during the Eclipse on September 27th with Boothe Memorial Astronomical Society at Boothe Memorial Park in Stratford.

Enjoy an evening viewing an eclipse and other astronomical objects.SEPTEMBER 27, 2015 8:00-11:00 pm 

This event also marks “First Light” of our newly redesigned 16” telescope.  
The scope has too much magnification to enjoy an eclipse, but we'll have other scopes on the field for the eclipse and other astronomical objects.

The Boothe Memorial Astronomical Society (BMAS) Observatory is in Boothe Memorial Park at 5800 Main St, Stratford, CT.  Our building is located on the hill between the RR museum and the cemetery.

From Merritt Parkway, use Exit 53. Proceed south on Route 110 to Main St. Putney which branches off to the right. Ride south on Main St. Putney six-tenths of a mile to the park.

NOTE: Bathrooms not available.
