Started in 1991 by the Rockland Astronomy Club as an outreach project, NEAF quickly grew into a world renowned meeting place for amateurs and professionals to gather and share ideas through lectures, workshops, Pro/Am conferences, classes, and informal gatherings. For over a quarter century, NEAF is a true ‘Forum’ of interests for anyone who has gazed upward to the night sky and found a curiosity to understand the cosmos that lies beyond our own pale blue dot.
NEAF Talks is held throughout the course of the conference in the beautiful 600 seat Performing Arts Center on campus. Each year NEAF Talks searches the globe for the most relevant personalities who are making space, science and astronomy history to bring you an all-star line-up of amazing guests.
