                        ATMoB Clubhouse

ARIO and Ed Knight Observatory

Located in Westford, MA, less than an hour's drive from Boston. The clubhouse is maintained for members, but any non-member may visit with a member or by other prior arrangement (see the Contact Us page). The clubhouse is located on the grounds of MIT's Millstone farmhouse in Westford, MA. The clubhouse is open most Saturday nights, weather permitting, so it is wise to call in advance (978-692-8708).

Please do not drive onto the observing field after dark. Park either in the gravel lot where you enter, or across the street by the tall "garage door" building.
