Thanet Astronomy Group

About the Club

Astronomy for Everyone in Plain English.

Our aim is to promote Astronomy to anyone with an interest. We work with the General Public, Schools and other Groups.

We are an astronomy group that is intended for people at all levels of astronomy. We especially welcome people new to the subject. All you need is an interest in the stars above and a willingness to be up and out after dark.

We hold a Free Public Meeting every Saturday 1-4pm at the Cafe for people new to astronomy. If you have a Telescope that lives in its box in the loft, this meeting is for you, (Bring the telescope with you).

We also run evening and daytime meetings, events, courses and presentations.

We are based at the West Bay Cafe, (Sea Road, Westgate-on-Sea CT8 8QZ) by very kind permission of the owners. We have all the comforts of a really good venue with Food, Drinks, Toilet and even an outdoor covered area for the not so good days.
