United Astronomy Clubs of New Jersey, Inc. (UACNJ) was formed in 1988 as a loosely associated networking group for New Jersey area amateur astronomy clubs.

UACNJ itself is not a club, but a consortium of a dozen and a half clubs united to support, coordinate, and communicate ideas among over 1400 individuals who make astronomy their hobby, in and around the state. UACNJ helps promote and support amateur astronomy in the New Jersey area by representing its member clubs with its astronomical displays at major area events.

UACNJ's presence has been seen regularly at the Rockland Astronomy Club's "Astronomy Forum" in the spring, the Amateur Astronomers Association of Princeton's "New Jersey StarQuest" June camp weekend, Bucks-Mont Astronomical Association's "Stella-Della-Valley" camp weekend in the fall, as well as UACNJ's own April Astronomy Day and September Symposium events, held at the UACNJ Observatory.

UACNJ maintains a Speakers' Bureau for member clubs, awards Messier, Asteroid and Spectroscopic Certificates to qualifying observers, and maintains this web site which provides information on member clubs and links directly to all their web sites.
