Programme

Programme for 2020

The monthly meetings of the Somerset Levels Stargazers take place on the
last Wednesday of every month except December at 8.00pm in Othery
Village Hall, Fore Street, Othery TA7 0QU Everyone welcome.

Each month we will:

  • Inform
    members about highlights in the night sky over the coming month.

  • Have
    a talk on a different subject each month given by a club member or
    guest speaker.

  • Look
    at the Apollo Moon missions leading up to and beyond the first Moon
    landing 50 years ago.

  • Keep
    members up to date on any interesting discoveries and events

We ask attendees to pay only £2.50 per meeting, or alternatively take
out an annual membership at a cost of £20.00. Tea and Coffee are
provided and if the sky is clear after our meeting we can conduct an
observing session at the back of the hall in the car park. We hope to
see you there.
