Become a Member
If you have an interest in Astronomy, Cosmology, Astrophotography – or just an interest in the night sky – and want to meet like-minded people then please come along to one of our meetings.
You are about to join one of the largest societies, and probably the most active society in the North East. We support the whole of Tyne & Wear community and North East region with anything astronomical.
We cater for all levels of Astronomy interest and experience.
We are especially pleased to welcome newcomers into the fascinating study of the heavens, whether you are an absolute beginner or an experienced observer.
And remember, you do not have to own astronomical telescope/equipment to become a member.
Our membership season runs from the 1st September each year.
Free Membership Renewal (2021-2022)
The SAS committee decided to wave the 2021 membership renewal fee for all existing members.
This would normally have become due on 1st September, however as we have not been able to meet or hold events, and in recognition of your continued support we felt it only right to do this.
New Members (2021 – 2022)
New members during the coming season will still be required to pay the membership fees.
These membership Fees would usually be paid at our base of operations (Wetlands Centre/Observatory), however as meetings are suspended ATM.
Therefore, new membership fees can be paid in the form or a Bank Transfer.
For payment details contact the SAS Treasurer.
For new memberships these should be payable throughout September, funds go towards society rental costs.
Your membership also provides Public/Products Liability Insurance (PPLI) cover for members at our society events.
