Add to calendar

The Shropshire Astronomical Society is a county-wide group for anyone interested in astronomy, stargazing or space exploration. It meets regularly throughout the year at Rodington Village Hall for observing sessions, and periodically at various venues for lectures and additional observing sessions.

The society is keen to promote astronomy and raise public awareness of astronomy, as it encourages members to pursue their passion for astronomy in whichever way they enjoy most.
