The North Essex Astronomical Society welcomes everyone with an interest in astronomy, whatever their level of expertise. From novice to expert, we aim to be a society for all amateur astronomers. Members’ interests range from observing and astrophotography, from telescopes to astrophysics. Our common love is a passion for astronomy. We try to build a greater appreciation of the dark night sky and help people enjoy it.

  • North Essex Astronomical Society meeting

    The third Wednesday of the month from January 2024 to December 2024, except for August

    Henry Dixon Hall, Witham, CM8 3HR

    Join the friendly North Essex Astronomical Society members for this monthly lecture meeting on the third Wednesday of each month (except for the first Wednesday in December and no meeting in August). Anyone is welcome, beginner or expert.

    The lectures are suitable for older children and adults. Younger children are welcome but may find the Society's regular star gazing events at Great Notley Country Park more interesting!

    These sessions are also a fantastic way to learn about the Society and its regular members-only club nights at their observatory.

    Doors open at 19:30 for a 20:00 start; a small fee is payable at the door, with under 16's free.
  • North Essex Astronomical Society – Young Astronomers Club

    The second Tuesday of the month from January 2024 to December 2024, except for August

    Southview School - Witham, Witham, CM8 2TA

    Young Astronomers Club is the perfect introduction for the budding astronomer!

    Run by a friendly team of astronomers from the North Essex Astronomical Society, you'll learn about the night sky, how to use telescopes and participate in other great fun activities. On clear nights you will be able to look through their telescopes.

    The club runs on the second Tuesday of each month (except for August) at Southview School in Witham and is for primary school-age children.

    Each session costs £4 per child and includes a squash drink. Tea and coffee are available for adults for a small donation. Parents are required to stay and encouraged to join in.

    If space allows, our coordinator may accommodate children outside the age range. Please get in touch with the Society to ask.

    Prior booking is essential!
