Are you looking for new members? Simply register your society with and potential new menbers will find and contact you by clicking on the map.


Would you like to meet other amateur astronomers living near you? Search for Astronomical Societies by location and link to their programme of guest speakers.


Do you organise the lecture programme for your Astronomical Society? Just click on your location on the map to find speakers willing to visit your society.


Are you looking for someone to enhance the experience of astronomy and space in the curriculum? Do you need a speaker for your club or group? Contact your local Astronomical Society through this website for a speaker or arrange to visit their observatory.


This is an excellent idea, long overdue and just what is needed for astronomy outreach. There has been a real gap in trying to connect those interested in giving talks/presentations etc with those who are looking for volunteers. I would encourage all those who regularly give talks to the public, societies and schools to sign-up to this excellent website. I saw it advertised in PA and I must try and get it publicised as much as possible. I’ve been banging on to the RAS for over a year now for them to sort out their outreach pages so that they can advertise potential speakers. Having a link to this page would be a great way forward as they’ve got information all over the place and it’s almost impossible to find. I’ve volunteered to set an example to my professional colleagues. 

Great job.

love the site and a great idea. I can see me using this a lot.

I'm involved with a couple of groups, and also the thriving local astro community in the  Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire area.

What a brilliant idea - why has it taken so long for someone to think of it.


I think it's a fine idea.

---- looks like a great and useful venture. Please count me in!
