Upcoming Events

  • Saturday 16th October - International Observe the Moon Night

    Join us for the International Observe the Moon Night!
    Starting at 19:30 and continuing as long as we're all willing to hang around. We'll have a few telescopes set up most focused on the Moon, but maybe some on other things.

    This is at the Sportsman Inn on Redmires Road. The pub starts serving food at about 18:30 so get there a bit earlier if you want some quality pub grub!
    Note that like all our outdoor events, this is FREE and you do not need to be a member to attend. (Food and drinks in the Sportsman are NOT included!)

    Location: Sportsman Lodge Moor, 569 Redmires Rd, Sheffield S10 4LJ, UK
