Due to restrictions imposed by the need to follow Government rules and guidelines on containing the Coronavirus, the ASG’s public outreach activities have been suspended until further notice.

When we are back to normal, you can look here for information on public outreach activities.  Typically, during the winter months, we will focus on introducing people to the night sky and giving them the chance to observe the Moon, stars, galaxies, and nebulae through a range of telescopes.  During the summer, the focus not unexpectedly, will change to solar observing.

You will be able to come along to these events and meet us, whether you are a beginner or an experienced astronomer.  If you would be thinking of buying a telescope, you will be able to gain first-hand experience of the various types of telescopes on display.

In the meantime you could check out some of the sources of information and advice available online.
