Fordingbridge Astronomers

“The Night conceals the World but reveals the Universe”

Sharing the wonder of dark skies

Fordingbridge Astronomers is a group of amateur astronomers of all abilities and ages, who meet regularly to share their enjoyment of astronomy. We are based around Fordingbridge, Ringwood and Verwood with access to the pristine dark skies of the New Forest National Park and Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Beauty.

We are passionate about spreading our enthusiasm of the night sky, and welcome all interested people, especially newcomers to the hobby, to our meetings. Join us!
