Welcome to the Wormhole - Ames Area Amature Astronomers window on the web

The Ames Area Amateur Astronomers is a dynamic organization with activities held year-round. Each month at our meeting we present a guest speaker, with exciting lectures about space and astronomy. 

   May Meeting

The next meeting will be May 16. We will meet at 7 PM for meet and greet among the attendees. At 7:30 we will have a presentation on eclipses.  We were treated to two Solar and two Lunar eclipses in 2014 visible from here in Iowa. There will be four eclipses in 2015 as well, but only the two lunar eclipses will be visible for us. Come and find out what eclipses are and how best to observe them. The total solar eclipse in 2017 will also be discussed so we can all be prepared for it.
