Welcome to the Universe.
WHO WE ARE
The University of St Andrews Astronomical Society hosts free stargazing events each Thursday night, from the comfort our of observatory facilities. Open rain or shine, we endevour to showcase the best that the universe has to offer. We have two research-grade telescopes, and many smaller ones. During our weekly stargazing sessions, we feature several prominent objects in the night sky.
The Astronomical Society primarily uses the Napier Building Observatories. Here we use both our 10" Makutov-Cassegrain LX200 and 16" Schmidt-Cassegrain LX200 telescopes to seek out the dimmest stars. Capable of seeing galaxies outside of our own, we regularly push these instruments to their limits. Join us for a night and see the breathtaking magnifience of the universe for yourself.
