Astronomy Club interested in all aspects of the night sky

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

North Jersey Astronomical Group


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!

The NJAG is a member of the
United Astronomy Clubs of New Jersey

 ...and the International Dark Sky Association (IDA).
