BoBfest - The Regional Gathering of Amateur Astronomers

As of February 14, we expect BoBfest 2022 to be held in-person at Catawba Science Center in Hickory. Some of the presentations will have virtual presenters via Zoom. We are prepared to take the entire event virtual again this year but we do not expect this to happen.


ALL VISITORS MUST WEAR A MASK IN THE INDOOR AREAS REGARDLESS OF VACCINATION STATUS. Everyone is ENCOURAGED to wear a mask outdoors..

The virus situation has necessitated ongoing changes to masking, distancing, and capacity. We will follow all requirements of the Catawba Science Center concerning masking and social distancing.

We will attempt to provide ZOOM meeting links for the BoBfest Keynote Talks provided we have the manpower and hardware available to set up the online meeting.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
