Overmills Road, Ayr, Ayrshire, KA7 3LR
Members of the Ayrshire Astronomical Society meet every fourth Monday of each month (except for December) at the Kyle Academy in Ayr.
Meetings occur in the theatre building to the right of the main school building as you enter the car park, and are mainly talk-based, with presentations given by members and guest speakers.
These events are a great way to meet local astronomers and find out about their activities. In addition, the society has a particular aurora group which is administered via Facebook and alerts members when the aurora is visible.
For full details on how to attend this event, including how to book, please see the event's official website.Visit event website
