Hi there!

Welcome to the University of Southampton Astronomy Society, AstroSoc.

We are a group of amateur astronomers studying at the University of Southampton. We welcome anyone at the University with an interest in astronomy - no prior experience required. Our members are always happy to help newcomers learn the ropes, from how to read the sky to how to set up and use a telescope.

So... why not come down and have a go? We normally meet every Monday inside the SUSU building, and provided the skies are clear, we head out onto the common to observe. However, if the British weather is up to its usual tricks then we have other activities such as quizzes and astronomy talks - or we just head down to a local pub for a catch up! Throughout the year we try to organise other activities, such as cinema trips or visits to astronomical places of interest.


The best way of finding out more is by joining our Facebook group. We also send out emails each week with details of our observing sessions. To join our Mailchimp mailing list, enter your email address below:



It was lovely to see everyone back on the common. We hope to see the commet C/2022 E3 ZTF more clearly next week.
