Each Thursday we meet in The Godlee Observatory (apart from the Public Lecture evenings and the Christmas/New Year break), from about 19:00. Any scheduled talks will start at about 20:00. Weather permitting, we may also observe using the telescopes until as late as people want to stay. If you are interested in coming to any of these meetings please see the visitor information page.
