The festival is for anyone who has an interest in astronomy. Local amateurs, like the members of the New Hampshire Astronomical Society, share their passion and enthusiasm about astronomy with the public. Families in particular are encouraged to attend NEFAF because astronomy can be such a great group hobby. NEFAF will cater to families of all ages, with activities like face-painting and stories for small children and hands-on activities and demonstrations for older kids and young adults.
For young adults as well as adults of any age there will be a series of short, informal science talks throughout the day on Saturday given by students, faculty, and other invited guests. There will be safe solar viewing and telescope clinics for scopes in need of a little TLC. On Saturday afternoon, we'll hold our famous AstroRaffle with great astronomy-related prizes like telescopes, binoculars, eyepieces and books.
