Welcome to the new mobile section of the Loughton Astronomical Society web site.
The LAS meets on Thursday evenings (8:00 - 10:00 p.m.) in the Scout Hall, off Loughton Lane, Theydon Bois, Essex (next to the Cricket Club). The Scout Hall is marked in red on the map (click "Map" tab above).
We welcome all levels of experience from the absolute beginner to the experienced astronomer. Why not come along one Thursday evening, guests are always welcome. Our Thursday evening programme and our programme of other activities are listed below.
We also have a junior section for observers aged 6-14 years. Click on the "Astrokyds" tab above for more details.
