Meetings 2020

We hold a monthly meeting on the second Saturday of every month at Shurdington Social Centre, Cheltenham, at 7:45pm. For directions on how to get there please click here.

Meetings normally start with a speaker on some subject of astronomical interest, then a break for tea or coffee and a chat, and then a further session which often includes members observational results, what’s up in the sky, or constellation lore. Unless it is clear, in which case we would go out to do some observing.
