Directions to Charlie Elliott

Next Meeting: April 18, 2020

March Potluck Dinner Cancelled! Please Join Us on April 18!

With more and more events and schools being closed and out of an abundance of caution, the decision has been made to cancel this month’s potluck dinner. An announcement will be posted here in the near future about its new date. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but better safe than sorry.

This decision, however, does not prevent any who wish to set up and observe at the Jon Wood Astronomy Field, weather-permitting of course, since that will be a personal decision.

Please check out our Facebook Page! There you’ll find a welcoming group of people sharing ideas and tips as well as organizing ad-hoc observing and imaging sessions on the Jon Wood Astronomy Field.
For those not familiar with the Charlie Elliott Wildlife Center, go to  The CEWC phone is 770-784-3059, Monday–Saturday 9 a.m.–4:30 p.m.


If you have an idea for a 15 to 20-minute pre-meeting presentation about something you’ve learned or a project you’re working on, contact Steve Siedentop or Ken Poshedly.

It’s easy to become a member of Charlie Elliott Astronomy!

Charlie Elliott Astronomy Membership Form
Pay dues with PayPal

All Charlie Elliott Astronomy events are free and open to the public and you don’t have to be a member to attend our meetings or join us on Jon Wood Astronomy Field.  However, we would encourage you to consider a yearly paid membership for less than the cost of a couple of pizzas.  Your membership dues allow us to continue our science outreach programs in area schools and youth organizations, merit badge programs with area Scout Troops, and allow us to maintain the facilities on Jon Wood Astronomy Field.  To become a member, you can fill out our Membership Form or contact an officer.  March is membership renewal month. If you are renewing your membership, no form is necessary.
