Astronomy by night, by day, indoors and outdoors! There are activities for everyone!

Our lecture meetings are held on the first Monday of each month between September and May in the lecture theatre of the NMM, or in the Peter Harrison Planetarium at the Royal Observatory Greenwich (ROG). We feel it a privilege to be able to hold our meetings on a site of such astronomical significance, and to have access to the ROG professional staff and other eminent guest speakers. As well as the history of the subject, lectures are arranged on all aspects of astronomy including cosmology and space flight. Information about our previous meetings and visits can be found in the Reports & Pictures section of this website.
The Society regularly holds observing evenings using members’ own telescopes as well as the Society’s 10-inch Dobsonian, made by members. Observing sessions are held on Blackheath SE3, at Cudham in Kent, and at Romney where a member has a permanently-mounted 14-inch SCT telescope. In addition the Society stages viewing sessions with the ROG’s 28-inch Great Equatorial refractor, the largest of its kind in the UK, and seventh largest in the world.
