Cancellation of Events
In light of the rapidly developing situation regarding Covid-19 / Coronavirus, the Council has taken the decision to cancel ALL remaining events for the 2019/2020 session.
Specifically, this refers to all remaining public lectures for April and May.
The AGM, scheduled for May, is provisionally postponed. Council are evaluating ways of conducting the AGM remotely, via a video conferencing medium. Further details will be provided in good time.
The Council will continue to manage the societies (the "Old" ASG and the new SCIO) by video conferencing, conference calls and email as appropriate.
We sincerely regret having to take these actions, however the safety of our members is paramount and we feel it would be irresponsible to do otherwise. We will continue to monitor the situation and will provide updates here on the website and via social media.
The ASG's free public lectures for the 2019-20 session are as follows. These are normally held in Room 6.41 Royal College, Strathclyde University unless otherwise advised. Access is via the Montrose Street entrance, take the lift to Level 3, exit the lift and take the 2nd set of steps on your left, go through the double glass doors. Room 6.41 is on your left approximately half way along the corridor. The lectures start at 7:30pm and are preceded from 6:45pm by either a presentation on the month's skywatching highlights or by a social event giving you the opportunity to meet other members.
The dates for the observing nights at Acre Road and Mugdock for 2019-2020 have now been finalised. There have been some last minute changes to the Mugdock dates, so please check - also, Dr Andrew Conway has kindly offered to use the Mugdock observing dates to supplement the Beginner's Astronomy Course.
Further details are available by clicking this link (members only - remember to login!).
More generally, the Go Stargazing website is a useful resource for anyone seeking advice on observing, with information on where to go, what you can expect to see, and highlighting organised events.
