Welcome to the Cleethorpes & District Astronomical Society, founded in 1969 and located at Beacon Hill Allotments, Cleethorpes. We have our own lecture room and observatory containing a 16 inch Newtonian/Cassegrain telescope as well as other smaller telescopes. Regular monthly meetings are held on the first Wednesday of every month with invited speakers who give talks on a range of astronomical topics. We also run a beginners' course from September to June once a month on Friday evenings which is open to everyone.
There will be a transit of Mercury on 9 May from 12:12 to 19:42 BST. The observatory will be open from 14:00 to 18:00 for members, beginners and their family and friends providing the weather makes observing possible. Please note: only members bringing equipment will be allowed vehicular access.
