Who we are

Established in 1990, we are a friendly astronomical society that is open to anyone with an interest in Astronomy, space exploration and similar topics. People with all levels of experience are welcome, especially beginners.

Regular Talks and Meetings

When Professor Chris Lintott gave a talk to our club

We have weekly club meetings, where we have talks on what's up in the sky during the month, the latest scientific discoveries, and also every month, a guest speaker who would deliver a talk on a specialist topic. We've had speakers from the BBC Sky at Night programme, as well as renowned professors and scientists from well known organisations.
