Astronomy Society

We are an enthusiastic group of astronomers from all parts of the university. We regularly observe on the Southampton Common.

About Astronomy Society

Welcome to our SUSU page! We are a group of amateur astronomers who go observing on Southampton Common. Why not come along and try it out? We meet every Monday in the main SUSU building by reception at 8:00pm.

Below are some pictures of our society in action - an observing session, at our end of year event and on a solar observing session.
