Meetings — Speakers

The Cape Cod Astronomical Society usually holds a monthly meeting, with a guest speaker, in the DYHS school library (the library is in the front right-side of the school as you face it from Station Avenue) which is located at:

Dennis-Yarmouth High School
210 Station Ave, South Yarmouth, MA 02664

The meetings are held on the first Thursday of each month beginning at 7:30pm.  After the guest speaker has concluded their engagement, society members will usually have a discussion of society interests.

During the Covid-19 emergency, physical meetings and our dinner (see below) have been suspended. However, efforts are being made to have meetings online. Check with First Light Lite and our Society calendar to see what events are being scheduled.

Gus Romano or his delegate “host” a dutch-treat dinner gathering for members and friends of the Society each meeting night. The speaker for each meeting is always invited. Please join the group to dine and talk about all things interesting, including astronomy!  Check the calendar for time and location information.

* If you would like to give a talk, either as the main speaker of the evening, or as an ancillary speaker, please notify Jim Lynch at jlynch@whoi.edu.
