Calthorpe Park School > Students > Astronomy Club
Itelescope's observatory in Queensland, Australia.

Welcome to the Calthorpe Park School Astronomy Club website!
We meet on Friday lunchtimes in room 35 to talk about stars, planets and science, fact or fiction. The aim of the club is to share information, learn from others and get excited about space.
This is a casual, friendly club and all are welcome. There will be star gazing outings (supported by parents) in order to see the real thing as well as trips to the planetarium at INTEC in Winchester and the observatory at Cody Astronomical Society in Farnborough.
See the Photo Gallery for the photography competition winners!
