Public Programs at Jenny Jump

UACNJ provides free public programs at our Observatory in Jenny Jump State Forest from April through October on Saturday evenings. An astronomy presentation begins at 8 PM in the lecture hall regardless of the weather and is followed by stargazing on the observatory's telescopes until 10:30 PM, weather permitting.
Groups are always welcome at our Saturday night programs; please contact us in advance if you wish to bring a group of more than 10 people. We suggest a donation of $50 for groups up to 25 people and an additional $2 per person over 25 with a maximum of 50 for groups on Saturday nights during the public season.
Programs on other nights can be arranged with advance notice. Please email info@uacnj.org for details. For these special programs, which require additional staffing and extra use of our facilities, we suggest a minimum donation of $75 for groups up to 25 people and an additional $3 per person over 25 with a maximum of 50 per group.

Please visit our list of Member Clubs to find out about other astronomy events, meetings and stargazing.
