We are a local club that gets together regularly for monthly astronomy talks (at our regular meetings), enjoy regular star parties (at our observatory and local schools), and other local astronomy related events.
This website is to reach out to new people who may be interested in joining us in our events, and also to our current members to find information on upcoming events.
Feel free to contact us at any time for more information.

Alternatively, if you’re already a facebook member, you can search for it by searching for “Official Sudbury Astronomy Club.” The group also has another added advantage of members being able to email directly to the group which will show up as a group posting, useful if you’re on the move.
