Ayrshire Astronomical Society


Due to unforeseen circumstances we are no longer able to use Prestwick Academy as our monthly meeting location. Temporary accommodation is being sought and will be announced very soon. We apologise for any inconvenience but this is out-with our control. Our meeting on April 29th, and AGM on May 20th will still be held, location to be announced.

Meeting times are 7pm till 9:30pm. At each meeting there is “time for a chat” when members get together to discuss scopes, astronomy kit and star gazing or just catch up with the gossip. We also have short talks from Members and a Guest speaker. Don’t worry if you are a newcomer or a beginner just join in the chat! We have all levels of experience and will be pleased to help. If you would like further information details or information please contact us via the Contact page.
