Who We Are

The Cape Cod Astronomical Society is a group of amateur astronomers who enjoy looking at the cosmos and teaching others about our craft.

We are dedicated to:

  • Providing instruction and education for those who wish to view the skies.
  • Supporting those with special interests in astronomy, space science and related fields.
  • Preserving our night skies and saving energy by reducing light pollution.

We meet once a month to share ideas and observing experiences, and to participate in an astronomy or science presentation.   CCAS also sponsors regular public “star parties” at the Werner Schmidt Observatory, as well as meetings where members can do casual observing and conduct scientific studies.

These are the current officers of the Cape Cod Astronomical Society:

President – Jim Lynch

Vice President – Ashish Dutta

Treasurer – Mike Hunter

Secretary – Katie Sisson
