Friday 4th January 2019
SIGMA Stargazing and Equipment Night

Venue: Lhanbryde Community Centre

SIGMA’s annual Stargazing meeting. A joint club night and public observing session.

Held at Lhanbryde, this event will give members and visitors a chance to see many of the wonders of the local night sky and talk with local astronomers.

The full programme for 2018 can be found here or as a pdf.

We meet first Friday of the month (unless otherwise specified) at Birnie Village Hall. Doors at 7pm for a 7.30pm start.

Not a Member? Why not come along as the first meeting's free so you can 'try before you buy'.

Club members can also attend the meetings of the Highlands Astronomical Society (HAS). Details of forthcoming meetings of both can be found in the Whats On section of this website, or download a copy of our 2018 Leaflet (pdf).
