Astronomy Club interested in all aspects of the night sky

It is clear to everyone that astronomy at all events compels the soul to look upwards, and draws it from the things of this world to the other.

— Plato

Welcome to the North Jersey Astronomical Group's web page. The NJAG is an astronomy club of more than fifty stargazers interested in all aspects of the night sky.

Since 1981, the NJAG has sponsored many activities for the public in Northern New Jersey, including weekly Telescope Nights and a monthly lecture series in the spring and fall plus special events. Tens of thousands of people have discovered the wonders of the Universe through our telescopes!
