Ashburton Astronomy Group welcomes and invites you, to discover more about our Solar System, our Galaxy and environs beyond. View the majestic rings of Saturn, the swirling clouds in the atmosphere of the giant planet Jupiter and the mountains and craters on the lunar surface. Observe galaxies so distant from us, that the light from them has taken many millions of years to reach our telescope.
