Where do we meet?
Stour Astronomical Society meets on on the first Tuesday of every month at 7.30 p.m. in the Cavendish Memorial Hall
Cavendish, Sudbury CO10 8AG
About the S.A.S.
The Society was founded in 2003 to provide a focal point for amateur astronomers of all levels of interest and ability to meet and share their enjoyment of the night skies. Members are drawn from nearby towns and villages in the Stour Valley area and from further afield.
At each meeting an illustrated talk will be given either by a society member or by a guest speaker.
Observation will be possible on clear nights and members are invited to bring telescopes or binoculars when weather conditions permit.
All talks are preceeded by a presentation of Astronomy in the News and the Night Sky for the Coming Month – By Glynn Parsley.
The Library contains a very large selection of books and some videos/CDs for free lending to members and is open at each talk evening.
