Somerset Levels Stargazers is a group of enthusiastic amateur astronomers interested in looking at the stars, planets and anything else in space. We meet at least once a month to pass on our knowledge and share our interest in astronomy with people from the Somerset Levels.


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.
  • Give all the latest Space News from the World of Astronomy.

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.
