Astronomy in Edinburgh

Come along to one of our meetings, hear interesting talks, find out about what’s in the sky this month and meet other astronomers.

We meet monthly, usually on the first or second Friday of the month at 7:30pm, and are always happy to see new faces at our meetings. See below for the next meeting date.

The Astronomical Society of Edinburgh (ASE) has been holding meetings in Edinburgh to inform members and the general public about astronomy since 1924.

Our new website is in its prototype phase so it will develop over the next few months. Keep coming back to see how it evolves.

Ask an Astronomer

Is there something you always wanted to know about our universe?

How to observe a planet? Take a photo of the stars? Which telescope to buy? Why is space black? …

Well here’s your chance: just ask your question in the form and we’ll try and get back to you with an answer. The answer may just be: “we have no idea” – but that’s the beauty of astronomy!
