The website of the Neville Public Museum Astronomical Society.
The Neville Public Museum Astronomical Society (NPMAS) is an amateur astronomy club located in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Membership is open to anyone with an interest in astronomy.
Our meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Neville Public Museum (unless otherwise noted on the calendar). The meetings are free and open to the public. After some casual business highlighting past and upcoming events, we have a featured presentation or observing session. You can get a list of our meeting presentations by following the meun above. While our meeting are open to people of all ages, museum rules state that anyone under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
The NPMAS is a member of the Night Sky Network, a public outreach program in association with NASA, JPL and the Astronomical Society of the Pacific. These organizations provide us with fun, educational hands-on activities and programs that we use to promote different astronony concepts to the general public.
NPMAS members provide astronomy outreach programs and telescope viewing sessions to scout groups, classrooms, nature centers and other interested groups and organizations. Twice a year in spring and fall, the NPMAS offers free Public Telescope Viewing Sessions in the Green Bay area. Club members set up their telescopes to show the wonders of the night sky to our community at large.
