The Shropshire Astronomical Society (SAS) is a county-wide group, run by volunteers for anyone interested in astronomy, star-gazing or space exploration. We meet once a month for observing sessions at Rodington and Little Ness Village Hall's. We also meet periodically at various venues for special events and outreach work thoughout Shropshire
We are keen to promote and raise public awareness of astronomy. We encourage members to pursue their passion for astronomy in whichever way they most enjoy. Consequently, the membership encompasses interests ranging from people observing, and using photographic equipment, to those content to read "Astronomy Now" and watch "The Sky at Night". We support beginners, enthusiastic amateurs and professional astronomers. Anyone with an interest in astronomy is welcome.
October 2021 UPDATE
Please visit our Join Us page if you would like to join the society.
The next SAS meeting is on Saturday 16th October at Rodington Village Hall. There will be a telescope surgery and hopefully some clear skies!
Our April Zoom meeting is now available on our Youtube channel where you can watch great presentations including Heroes of Astronomy by Andy Gannon, 60 years since Gagarins Spaceflight by John Thatcher and a tour of the April/May night sky with Steve Swajkun. There was also a quick telescope clinic at the end.
