Bolton Astronomical Society

The Society

Formed in 1980, the Bolton Astronomical Society is a local group of enthusiasts, spanning a wide range of ages and experience: we have a few newcomers and others who have been involved in the hobby for decades.

During the present pandemic we're not able to hold any physical meetings - but are getting together online via “Zoom” instead.

Our meetings are on Tuesday evenings: on the first and third weeks of the months from September to May and on the first weeks of June, July & August.
