Shown below are events the Astronomical Society of Greenbelt has planned for 2017. Star Parties and meetings are open to the public and are free of charge. Star parties may be cancelled without notice due to inclement weather (which includes skies too cloudy for stars to be seen). Meetings at Owens Science Center will be rescheduled if the Prince Georges County Schools are closed. Meetings at the Greenbelt Community Center will be rescheduled if City of Greenbelt Facilities are closed.
