Meetings of the Open University Astronomy Club are normally held from 7:30pm - 10:00pm on the first Tuesday of every month from September to June at the Robert Hooke Building of the Open University, Milton Keynes. A map showing the location of the Robert Hooke building in the OU campus can be found from the link Where we meet above.

Meetings are open to all (not just OU students and staff) and please do not worry if you are a beginner, our speakers are chosen to be of interest to all, and our members will be only too pleased to help you.
