The Knowle Astronomical Society welcomes you to our website

Home Page

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.

The meeting will also be available via 'Zoom'! A link will be emailed to paid up members a few days prior to the meeting. We will try to open the 'waiting room' for as early as possible for a 8pm start.

For highlights of what to see in the night sky this month see Ian Morisons excellent current guide on the Jodrell Bank website).
