Event Programme (Current Year)

The programme for 2022 is below.

Check back regularly in case any dates or times change. Note that event cancellations will be marked by scored through text.

Unfortunately Covid-19 restrictions and government recommendations of minimising social contact have temporarily affected how we are holding events. 

Until the Covid-19 situation improves, CAG will mostly be holding virtual online events and occasional live streamed observing sessions. See our Facebook page for information on online events open to the public.

For updates on any CAG online meetings available to the public please visit the CAG Facebook page. 

One bonus of the use of online meetings has been the opportunity for CAG members to use new arrangements to collaborate with, and join the meetings of other astronomical groups in the north of Scotland (HAS, SIGMA, AAS & NRAG).
