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 but tend to avoid bank holidays etc. 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,
