Astronomy


Overview

The Astronomy Society is focussed, quite literally, on the stars. With access to 3 telescopes, as well as the many astronomically-oriented institutions relatively near to us, the society has been able to establish and encourage a love of, and interest in, space and the stars.

Past Activities

Activities in the past have included talks during Open Periods, visits to the Planetarium, visits to the Observatory – home of the South African Astronomical Observatory which runs SALT which is based in Sutherland, outside speakers and visits to the observatory in the Cederberg.


Times and Content

The Astronomy Society endeavours to meet twice a term and boys are encouraged to look at the Pink Notice for details of meetings.
