We are based at the West Bay Cafe, Sea Road, Westgate-on-Sea CT8 8QZ by very kind permission of the owners. We have all the comforts of a really good venue with Hot Food and Drinks, Toilet and even an outdoor covered area for the not so good days.
Thanet Astronomy Group holds FREE daytime public meetings to make astronomy more available to everyone in plain English.
We are an astronomy group that is intended for people at all levels of astronomy.
We especially welcome people new to the subject. All you need is an interest in the stars above. If you want to learn about astronomy then this is for you.
When the weather is not so good we have a planetarium type program for use with a big screen.
So we can look at the Sky in the comfort of a nice warm room.
Whenever possible we like to take the telescopes out to see in person what we have been talking about.
This group is specifically aimed at making Astronomy accessible to the general public of all ages. Our aim is to get people involved and provide the practical experience so they have the ability to progress in this amazing hobby.
