About SAS

The Shropshire Astronomical Society (SAS) is a county-wide group, run by volunteers for anyone interested in astronomy, star-gazing or space exploration. We meet once a month for observing sessions at Rodington and Little Ness Village Hall's.  We also meet periodically at various venues for special events and outreach work thoughout Shropshire

We are keen to promote and raise public awareness of astronomy.  We encourage members to pursue their passion for astronomy in whichever way they most enjoy. Consequently, the membership encompasses interests ranging from people observing, and using photographic equipment, to those content to read "Astronomy Now" and watch "The Sky at Night". 

We support beginners, enthusiastic amateurs and professional astronomers.  Anyone with an interest in astronomy is welcome.

​The societies President is well known Astrophysicist Dr. Megan Argo!
