Seething Observatory Public Events

As a consequence of the presence of the Covid 19 coronavirus in the UK, the Observatory is closed to the public. 

For the next 6 months or so, we are going to focus on our club members, opening the observatory only to our paying members, helping them to enjoy and develop their hobby.

For our club members, this helps to minimise the risks to you, and allows you to visit the observatory, socially distancing on our observing pads, domes and in the clubhouse.
