Our inaugural meeting was on the 8th November 2010 and we officially formed in February 2011.
AAS holds monthly meetings with guest speakers.

All guests are welcome!
No knowledge necessary, just a curious mind.

We are able to provide assistance with setting up your telescope or just helping to find your way around the night sky.

AAS is able to host discussions on subjects as varied as Dark Energy through to 'How dark is your sky'.

Come along and get a new perspective on the universe in which you live!

Meteor watching party this Saturday!

Its that time of year again, time for the Perseid meteor shower.  They are around for the first couple of weeks of August and in Abergavenny tonight it is forecast to be clear so you may see some.  The Moon  is not well placed tonight but certainly worth a try.  Saturday evening is close to the peak, the Moon is much better placed and the forecast is clear.  This year Usk Astronomical Society are having a party! Proceeds will go to support the Velindre Cancer Unit.  It is in a beautiful (and very dark) location next to Llangorse Lake.  There will be a hog roast, planetarium, guided sky tours with telescopes, meteorite talks… what more could you ask for?  The details are as follows:

Location – Ty Mawr Farm (sign posted at the entrance to the drive “Lime Ltd.”), Llangasty, Brecon, LD3 7PJ

Admission including all activities and food – £20pp

Camping facilities £5

For tickets please contact Bethany.evans@lime.org.uk

Event starts at 7pm and goes on as late as you like!

Hope to see you there should be a wonderful evening.  If you are coming and want to bring a telescope or binoculars, maybe you want some help in there use, then bring them along.
