A poster promoting the Astronomy Club

The Astronomy Club[1] was a club at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry for students with an interest in astronomy.[2] Run by Professor Aurora Sinistra, it was open to students in all years, and met on Wednesday evenings at 9:30pm.[2]

Ben Copper had joined the club by the 1988–1989 school year.[1]

A poster promoting this club was put up on the noticeboard in the Gryffindor Common Room at some point during the 1990s.[2]
