Northumberland Astronomical Society

The Northumberland Astronomical Society was founded in 2000 by local amateur astronomers in Northumberland, UK. The society is informally known among its members as "NASTRO". The first formal meetings of the society were held in the village hall at Low Hauxley but increasing membership and the support of the Northumberland Wildlife Trust saw meetings move to the visitor centre in the nearby Hauxley Nature Reserve in 2002. The Nature Reserve was burned down in an arson attack on 29 June 2010, so society meetings are now held in the Beehive function room at The Trap Inn until the new building is completed, which is expected to be in 2017.
