Our thanks go to the Moray’s Astronomical Club SIGMA who are hosting this meeting

About SIGMA. The society was set up in the summer of 2000 and the inaugural meeting took place at Gordonstoun School on Friday 2nd June 2000. SIGMA's main aims are to make astronomy accessible to anyone and everyone who is interested, from the highly skilled to the completely "unknowledgeable"! SIGMA meets on the first Friday of every month at 7.30pm, at Lhanbryde Community Centre near Elgin. SIGMA is lucky enough to have a Dark sky observing site at Easterton Airfield, not far from Elgin. Where observing sessions are held on Friday and Saturday nights.

Members of SIGMA range from the complete beginner to those that have a wealth of experience in various aspects of astronomy and are always keen to share their knowledge with others. There have been a host of renowned speakers in the past, including Professor John Brown, Neil Bone from Astronomy Now, Professor Martin Hendry from University of Glasgow, Brian Kelly and Dr Dave Gavine. We continually aim to make our meetings as diverse and interesting as possible and regularly hold public observing sessions, where members of the public are invited to come along to our dark site with SIGMA members on hand to guide you through the night sky.
