The Swindon Astronomy Club



































Welcome to our website!

Dwarf Planet Makemaka (ESA)

Swindon Stargazers has been active for over 10 years, it was originally founded by Swindon resident Peter Struve in the International Year of Astronomy 2009 (IYA). He was also chairman of the club until March 2019 when ill health prevented him from continuing. I am pleased to say, that as the new chairman I am most grateful for his rich legacy in channelling the club to where it is today with a small, but supportive membership and a keen tradition of practical stargazing and outreach.

Robin Wilkey - Chairman
