Amateur Astronomers Association of Pittsburgh
The Amateur Astronomers Association of Pittsburgh, Inc. (AAAP) founded in 1929 on Pittsburgh's Northside promotes amateur astronomy and public outreach throughout southwestern Pennsylvania and beyond. Our over 300 member member volunteers share views through their personal astronomy equipment and through the telescopes of the club observatories, Wagman Observatory in Deer Lakes Park, Allegheny County and Mingo Observatory in Mingo Creek County Park, Washington County. From April through November public star gazing events called star parties are scheduled at the club's observatories as well as at municipal, county and state parks, libraries, schools, etc. through the year. Members also work with scouts, churches, schools and other groups for private events. From September through AAAP meets the second Friday of the month at the Carnegie Science Center for monthly membership meetings and lectures. The lectures are free and open to the public and feature some of the latest research in astronomy.
