Welcome to the Oxford University Space and Astronomy Society's website!

The aims of the Society are to promote and encourage an interest in astronomy, astrophysics and space science throughout the University. During term time, there are talks on Monday evenings (free for members, 2.50 for non-members), and observations (free) are usually held on Friday, Saturday or Sunday evenings (weather dependent - confirmation is made by email to the mailing list). More information can be found here. You can download a copy of our termcard here. Events are open to all.

Membership of the society costs 6 for one year, or 12 for life, and this gives you unlimited access to the society's talks. (Please note: life membership is only available to those who are members of the university.)

Please join our mailing list to keep up to date with the society! Weekly emails are sent out about talks and observations.
