We meet at the First Presbyterian Church in Smyrna, Delaware on the first Tuesday of each month from 7-9 PM. We meet September to June during the year, July, August we hold no meetings but are still active. The normal meeting format includes discussion of club activities, observing high lights, constellation and deep sky object of the month, an advertised presentation and possible guest speakers. We welcome the public to our meetings and are open to suggestions for topics and guest speakers. Observing is (usually) scheduled for the Friday and Saturday nearest the New Moon to maximize the observing hours during complete darkness. During the summer months when the park is open the observing site will be at the baseball field in the camping area at Tuckahoe State Park. In the winter we observe at the Equestrian center. Observing at Tuckahoe is limited to members of the Delmarva Stargazers only. The Delmarva Stargazers are also dedicated to promoting amateur astronomy in our area through educational outreach. Club members often do presentations at local libraries, schools, and scouting organizations, among others. The club publishes a monthly newsletter, The Star Gazer News, seven days before the club meeting.
