Astronomy Club interested in all aspects of the night sky

"Professor Goddard does not know the relation between action and reaction and the need to have something better than a vacuum against which to react. He seems to lack the basic knowledge ladled out daily in high schools."
--1921 New York Times editorial about Robert Goddard's revolutionary rocket work.

"Correction: It is now definitely established that a rocket can function in a vacuum. The 'Times' regrets the error."
NY Times, July 1969.

North Jersey Astronomical Group


Welcome to the North Jersey Astronomical Group's web page. The NJAG is an astronomy club of almost 100 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!

For information on joining our club - please click on "Join NJAG" on the menu above.


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

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






Update January 2021: Please note that our meetings and events at Montclair State are still on hold - likely through the end of the spring semester. Our monthly club meetings and events are now taking place online as noted in the events calendar on this page. Telescope Nights will hopefully resume latyer this year as the situation allows.  Updates will be posted here and on our Facebook page. Many of these are also posted on our YouTube Channel.
