Summer 2005 Programme of Meetings

The A.S.E. is one of the country's largest amateur astronomy clubs. We are always happy to see new faces at our meetings.

Ordinary meetings take place at 8pm (Civil Time) in the City Dome of the City Observatory, Calton Hill (usually on the first Friday of the month). On other Fridays we are sometimes there between 8pm and 10pm if the skies are clear. There is no charge for admission. Please check by phone before coming up the hill.

Any changes to our meeting arrangements will be put on our website http://www.astronomyedinburgh.org/ and on the answering machine at the observatory (556 4365).
