Welcome to the Stour Astronomical Society
The home of amateur astronomers who like to learn, observe and image the night sky
An astronomy club in West Suffolk
The Stour Astronomical Society was established in March 2003 by Dr Kevin Marshall and Geoff Burling. Its main aim is to fill a void in the county of Suffolk where there is a lot of interest in astronomy but very few places to go and meet other amateur astronomers. Also members can listen to talks given by expert speakers, receive advice on what equipment you perhaps would like to buy and what to observe in the night sky. Members are drawn from nearby towns and villages in the Stour Valley area.
At the moment one either has to travel over to Cambridge or Orwell, both having first-class astronomical societies but nevertheless quite some distance away. So please come along on the first Tuesday of the month to meet fellow amateurs and to deepen your love of the wonders of the night sky. Please don’t forget to tell any friends you have who might also be interested in astronomy!
