Welcome to the University of Glasgow’s Astronomy Society! We are a group of enthusiastic individuals welcoming people from any discipline. If you have any questions, concerns or cool facts, please feel free to contact us.

About us

We host frequent guest lectures, observing nights, and social events. We also work with the school on some of their outreach projects. Although most of our events are held in the School of Physics and Astronomy’s facilities, membership is open to all.


Glasgow weather permitting, we run observing evenings at Acre Road Observatory. In addition, there are socials, guest lectures and an annual camping trip to Galloway Forest Dark Sky Park.

All our events are posted on our Facebook page, so make sure to give us a ‘like’, join our community and keep up to date!
