About the S.A.S.

The Society was founded in 2003 to provide a focal point for amateur astronomers of all levels of interest and ability to meet and share their enjoyment of the night skies. Members are drawn from nearby towns and villages in the Stour Valley area and from further afield.

At each monthly meeting an illustrated talk is given either by a society member or by a guest speaker from the amateur or professional astronomical community.

All talks are preceeded by a presentation of Astronomy in the News and the Night Sky for the Coming Month – By Glynn Parsley.

 

Meetings of Stour Astronomical Society - 7.30 p.m. - first Tuesday of each month in the Memorial Hall, Cavendish, Suffolk.

 

Membership £15.00 per year.

Visitors Welcome - £2.00 per talk .

 

Observing will take place using the Society’s telescopes during or after each talk evening and on other occasions listed on the web site www.stourastro.org.uk

 

The Library contains a very large selection of books and some videos/CDs for free lending to members and is open at each talk evening.
