Southampton Astronomical Society

Founded in 1924

Welcome to the Southampton Astronomical Society.

Pre Covid we met at the Issac Watts Memorial Church in Winchester Road Southampton SO16 6TS, since this is currently not possible, we hold all our meetings via Zoom. Our main meeting usually features a guest speaker and a small amount of society business.

We are always happy to welcome guests and newcomers. Please use our Contact form to ask questions and obtain the link to the Zoom Meeting


Some people think they can’t join an astronomy society because they are only ‘beginners’ – that is nonsense! We are happy to welcome beginners and experts alike, in fact some of our talks are specifically aimed at beginners. If you have just bought or found a telescope and are struggling to workout how to use it, please contact us. Once lockdown is over we encourage you to bring the telescope along to a Thursday meeting and after the main talk we can show you how to use it – we have all been there, we know its not easy!

Next Meeting Thursday 13th May 7:30pm to 9pm

Zoom meeting opens at 7:15pm
