The Society has been promoting Astronomy in Glasgow for over 100 years. Membership of the Society is open to all; and anyone, even with the vaguest interests in Astronomy, is welcome to find out what the Society is about.

We are a member of the British Association of Planetaria, affiliated to the British Astronomical Association and the Scottish Astronomers' Group. The society is a member of the Federation of Astronomical Societies, and is a registered Scottish charity (Charity Number SCO15035).

The Society holds nine regular monthly lecture meetings from September through to May each year. Lectures are held in the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow city centre at 7.30pm, normally on the third Thursday of each month (however this does occasionally change to allow us to welcome some of our speakers who have busy schedules).

All topics of Astronomy are covered in the lectures from Planetary Science to Astrophotography and The Search for Life Beyond Earth. The lectures are free and are open to members and non-members alike. Prior to each meeting a Newsletter is circulated to the Membership giving details of the speaker, the lecture topic and other matters of timely interest.

The Society is also involved in a number of outreach events, bringing Astronomy to the people of Glasgow and further afield. We have regular events for the public at the Glasgow Botanical Gardens where we provide a number of telescopes, and the knowledge of the members to allow the public to look through them to see the craters on the moon, planets and distant stars. If the skies aren't clear, then we will share our knowledge with presentations and talks on various astronomy topics.

We also have a number of observing evenings for our members, where we can take advantage of the 16" Meade LX200 telescope at University of Glasgow's Acre Road observatory, as well as some darker skies observing evenings at Mugdock country park just outside Glasgow.

We take every opportunity to ensure the details for Astronomical Society of Glasgow are accurate, please contact us at hello[@]whatsonnetwork.co.uk if any of the above information is incorrect.
