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, outside. Please bring your own chairs or blankets - your entire party can claim a spot in our presentation area, so make sure you come early (not before 7:30 ;-) )

Our live presentation is followed by stargazing on the observatory's telescopes until 10:30 PM, weather permitting.

Programs will be cancelled in the event of inclement weather - visitors with reservations will receive an email no later than 3pm on the day of the event if we cancel.

If we cancel the on-site program, we will still live stream on YouTube!

UACNJ is VIRTUALLY open during the Winter!
Check out our new on-line Winter programming!
