The society exists to provide people with a chance to learn about space, observe the sky and socialise with people who share this interest. No prior experience or knowledge is required - just come along and learn about the cosmos!
Our speaker events happen on Monday evenings during term-time at 8.30pm in the Denys Wilkinson Building on Keble Road (unless otherwise indicated). At these events guest speakers come to tell us about their latest research.
On Thursday evenings we take a telescope out to Port Meadow to observe the night sky, weather permitting! If the weather does not permit then we will have a social event instead, perhaps going to G&D's to console ourselves with delicious ice cream. Join the mailing list to be kept up to date with meeting times.
We also make and launch small model rockets once a term and once or twice a term we have the opportunity to use the Physics department's Wetton telescope.
