Members of the Jersey Astronomy Club meet regularly at their observatory located at the Sir Patrick Moore Astronomy Centre on the South of the island. Members of the public are most welcome to join them.
On the second Monday of every month, they have their monthly club meeting, which includes a talk by a club member or visiting speaker.
Every other Monday, the observatory dome is opened when the weather allows for observing — check the club’s FaceBook page early Monday evenings for confirmation if and when the observatory will be open.
