Are you interested in stars -

NOT Celebrities!, Celestial?

We are putting a new Astronomy group together and would love your involvement.

We have a group leader in place  - the Chairman of the Bassetlaw Astronomical Society in North Nottimnghamshire. What we need to know is the level of interest.

Please email to register your interest here and indicate which day is best for you.

As the summer progresses we will let you know the times and days of the meetings.

This is a fantastic opportunity to learn about this fascinating subject which has intrigued man since time began!


Astronomy is the study of celestial objects (such as stars, planets, comets, and galaxies) and phenomena that originate outside the Earth's atmosphere.

We will start with the basics - even just using our eyes to identify the planets and basic constellations, before moving on to the deeper stuff.

No equipment is necessary, though even a pair of binoculars will allow you to see new things!
