About us.

Crewkerne and District Astronomical Society was formed in 2002 with around 24 members. The society now has a membership of over 50.

Our meetings are held on the third Wednesday of every month starting at 7.30pm in the Village Hall, New Road, Norton sub Hamdon, TA14 6SF (next to the Primary School). Our meetings are open to all. No previous experience or knowledge of astronomy is required. If you are generally interested in ‘what’s up there’, would like to learn how to image the night sky or would like to know where to start in astronomy, you will be particularly welcome. Of course, experienced astronomers are welcome too!

Find us on a map here.

One of the main aims of the Society is to ‘spread the word’ and to share our own interest and pleasure in astronomy with others. We have telescopes for the use of members who can also use our library.

Check our Events box for information on forthcoming meetings.
We look forward to seeing you.
