Everyone is invited to join the enthusiastic members of Sunderland Astronomical Society for an evening of stargazing and observing through their large aperture telescopes. If you need assistance with your own telescope you are welcome to bring it along.
These events are held every Thursday and Sunday through the observing season and are dependent primarily on the weather. Note that the third Sunday of each month is also the society’s monthly meeting and lecture night to which everyone is welcome.
