Welcome!

We are a group of stargazers who want to encourage others to take up the hobby and join us at our stargazing sessions. We also do outreach and public education including sidewalk stargazing sessions and presentations to adult and children’s groups.

You don’t need a telescope or stargazing experience start on your voyage to the stars – just time to come out and join us. If you want help using a telescope you already own or to purchase one, email us and we can meet with you at Saddington Park or one of our sidewalk sessions. If you have any questions or comments or want to be added to our email notification list, please contact us through the guestbook or our email ssggroup@live.com.

We stargaze whenever the sky is clear and we are available to go out. Saturday nights are usually reserved for Saddington Park. Check the space above for announcements of when we are going out.
