Welcome to Andover Astronomical Society

We are a small but active society with members of all ages and a  range of experience. We welcome complete beginners through to experienced observers and imagers.

The society has regular monthly meetings that run from September to April each year as well as other social and observing events.

We have a varied program to cater for all interests and levels of experience. Children are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult.


Our monthly meetings are held on the third Thursday of each month from September through April at:
Hurstbourne Tarrant Community Centre,
SP11 0AX.

Non-members and occasional visitors are very welcome. Meetings are free for members; for non-members there is a charge of £4 per visit but your first visit is free.

We have an active outreach program working with local schools and clubs which allows us to share our passion for the wonders of the night sky with as wide an audience as possible.

We are always pleased to hear from groups who would like to work with us to further our aims in this area.
