The Knowle Astronomical Society welcome you to our website
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


If you're interested in astronomy this is the society for you! Our members range from people with a casual interest in the subject to serious amateurs and professionals. You don't need any specialist knowledge to join, nor do you need to own a telescope. You can also be sure of a friendly welcome.

We normally meet on the first Monday of the month. Please check out the meeting dates on the "Meetings Calendar" menu item.

Doors open at 7.45pm ready for an 8pm start and are held at Dorridge Village Hall, Grange Road, Dorridge, SOLIHULL, B93 8QA.
 
Please see the 'About Us' link for more information, including how to get to the venue.

Meanwhile, check out if tonight will have clear skies; the phase of the moon or if the ISS will be visible at 'Clearoutside.com'.

Also, why not try 'flying' around the Milky Way and view our closest 100,000 stars from your armchair, seeing where our solar system sits in the great scheme of things!!
