About our society
The Geneva Astronomy Society (acronym SAG which stands for the Société Astronomique de Genève) was founded in 1923 and is an active club for stargazers.
The club is housed not far from Cornavin train station in Geneva. Members meet once a week for activities such as observations, documentaries, presentations and discussions. The SAG subscribes to several astronomy magazines and has an interesting library. It also owns several telescopes and has a small observatory near St. Cergue.
The SAG welcomes all astronomers from beginners to experts to join its club activities.
