St Andrews Observatory
University of St Andrews, St Andrews, KY16
The welcoming and dedicated students of the University of St Andrews Astronomical Society run regular open evenings at the St Andrews Observatory.
(Almost) every Thursday night, come rain or shine, the group endeavours to open their observatory for a free stargazing session. Everyone is welcome to join them for a showcase of the best that the Universe has to offer.
Whether you are a Professor of Astrophysics or you haven’t even heard of the Moon, they would love to have you visit, and we are sure you will learn something new!
