The Delaware Astronomical Society is a non-profit corporation of the state of Delaware and is affiliated with the Astronomical League-a national organization of amateur astronomers. It is strictly a volunteer amateur organization. All meetings are open to the public and interested persons are encouraged to attend. Meetings are generally held at 8:00pm on the third Tuesday of the month from September through June at Mount Cuba Astronomical Observatory (MCAO), located off Hillside Mill Road in Greenville, Delaware. We encourage active participation of our membership, with regular meetings often given by our members describing their exploits in astronomy. Special events may be scheduled throughout the year, that augment or replace regular meetings. These events include field trips throughout the region, sky shows and dinner meetings with invited speakers. All club members recieve two informative newsletters. The Focus is the monthly newsletter of the Delaware Astronomical Society that describes the club's activities. The Reflector is the newsletter of the Atronomical League.
