Community Observatory St Martin’s, Isles of Scilly

We are a small group of amateur astronomers who have just got funding and are in the process of building a community observatory on St Martin’s.
This will enable our community and our visitors to fully appreciate the wonders of our amazing unpolluted dark skies.

To help raise funds we are holding a Gala Dinner on the 6th October 2018 at the Karma Hotel on St Martin’s.

The guest speaker is acclaimed astrophotographer Damian Peach.

We invite you and your Society members to join the Loughton Astronomical Society on the 10th November 2018 to celebrate our 50th Anniversary.

Originally formed from an evening class to teach mirror making, the LAS continues to thrive with an active weekly programme and also organises the Autumn Equinox Skycamp at Kelling Heath.

Our 50th celebrations will start with displays, demonstrations and an indoor planetarium in the morning, followed by lectures from top astronomers in the afternoon.
