Year 2006
The Chester County Astronomical Society had an exciting year of observations and public outreach in 2006.

National Astronomy Day
National Astronomy Day was held on May 6th, 2006. Each year the Chester County Astronomical Society has an information booth at the Exton Square Mall. People are encouraged to stop by the booth and pick up a brochure and ask any questions they may have about the science of astronomy.

Sponsored Spring Classes
The Chester County Astronomical Society sponsored a series of Introductory Astronomy classes which were open to the public (for a nominal fee) and held the first and third Tuesday evening from February through May.
