University of Birmingham Astronomical Society

A society for all students interested in astronomy, space, and observing the night sky. Our membership consists of students, but we welcome members of the public along to our outreach events. We run a diverse range of events - these include fun socials, scientific talks and everything in between! We hold most of our events on Tuesday evenings and aim to observe afterwards.

To combat the clouded skies of Birmingham, we often run Short Notice Observations (SNOs) from time to time when the weather is at its best, ensuring that members have plenty of opportunities to observe with us! We have a number of society-owned telescopes and other astronomical equipment from antique (but very good) refractors to modern computerised scopes.

Our Facebook page is the best place to keep up to date with our activities, and members will receive regular email updates. Feel free to come along to any of our meetings to find out what we're all about! Annual membership costs £4 and allows us to provide quality events all year round while contributing to the upkeep of our telescopes.
