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.

Members will be pleased to know that we are well advanced with the transition of the ASG to its new legal status – a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO).

Following the Regulator’s approval and the set-up of the SCIO, all of the Society’s assets have been transferred across; and all future ASG events will now be run under the auspices of the SCIO. All that remains now is to close down the previous version of the ASG.

The Regulator has also given its approval for this, and it will be done after the annual accounts are completed and then approved by members at an AGM.

Members will join the new (SCIO) version of the ASG for the 2020-21 session.
