Registry of Astronomical Events- New England

Last updated April 3, 2004

No more updates, why?
The Registry of Astronomical Events in New England, was a good idea I had, and a lot of work on my part.
I tried for a year to collect information on all the astronomical events happening in the New England area. I needed a little support from the different clubs in the area to make the project work. Unfortunately most clubs did not give me any. I liked the idea of the calendar, but have given up on this one. I want to thank all those who did give me support.

The idea of the calendar is too important to let die, so I am working on a new project. The area is a little smaller, Western Massachusetts, but the scope is larger, all events, with subcategories. The difference is that before I did all the work. Now I invite any organization to maintain their own calendar here.
The address of the new calendar is
