UK Astronomy started as one man in a field. His name was Ross Hockham and he was looking for some friends to share his passion with.
A year on, UK Astronomy has a Facebook group which is over 1500 members strong, and Ross holds monthly events at Emberton Sports and Social Club amongst other places. He is regularly joined by 30-50 of his new found Astro buddies.
One of these events is their Photo Competition. FREE for all to enter and with a different category every month this is always a chance to win.
