NWJAA is a club for amateur astronomers that is based in Warren County, NJ.  The club's primary activities include public meetings, where an astronomy-related topic is presented, followed by astronomical observing when the weather permits. Meetings take place 6 times a year: April thru June, and September thru November, and are held at Alan's house near Blairstown (directions can be found at the above link). Meeting notifications, including time and date, are announced via email.
