About our Meetings
The San Mateo County Astronomical Society meetings are open to the public.  Attendance and parking are free. Children are welcome although the subjects may be too advanced for some.  Our meetings are held on the first Friday of the most months from 7:00pm to 9:30pm.  We meet in the Science Building (#36) at the College of San Mateo.   We gather at 7:00 pm in the ISC Room, room 110, for Coffee, Pizza and conversation.  We then move to the Planetarium at 8:00pm for the speaker's Presentation.   Parking is free in the adjacent well-lighted parking lot, marked Marie Curie Lot 5, or the nearby Galileo Lot 6.
