Astronomy Information Dark Sky Scotland
Scotland has some of the best areas of dark sky in Europe which offer spectacular views of the stars and planets. Come along to our events to enjoy the night sky and find out how astronomers are delving ever deeper into the wonders of the Universe.
Visitors to galaxyzoo.org get to see stunning images of galaxies. By classifying some of these images visitors are helping astronomers to understand the structure of the universe. The new digital images were taken using the robotic Sloan Digital Sky Survey telescope in New Mexico.
Some of the best astronomy courses around from reasonably basic astronomy to full level 3 astrophysics. Various members of HAS have done or are currently doing a number of astronomy or related courses with the OU.

Visions of the Cosmos
A wealth of information about the formation and evolution of our planet Earth and of the other planets of the Solar system. There follows sections on our Sun and the other stars including supernova, neutron stars and black holes. The final section discusses particle physics and the Large Hadron Collider.
Astronomy Societies Going Nova
Going Nova was established three years ago to identify for the Highlands and Islands the key areas of knowledge that need to be drawn on locally to sustain and develop the economy and community life of the region – and the routes to applying them.
Some of the new areas are quite abstract, for development over time; others have immediate practical benefit.
