Southern Maine Astronomers is a non-profit organization dedicated to public outreach and education in the area of astronomy. SMA is also a community of interested professional and amateur astronomers that exchange ideas and information at meetings and though an electronic forum.
Through its members, SMA makes advanced astronomical equipment and mentorship available to members, students, and the public who are interested in astronomy. We also hold star parties where naked eye and telescopic viewing take place, with the support of trained volunteers. SMA’s monthly meetings feature lectures by experts in astronomy and discussions among members.
