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!

Next Meeting : Monday 26th February, 2018

The next AAS meeting will be on the topic of January’s “Sky at Night” programme,

The Invisible Universe

 

The currently accepted model of the universe suggests that normal stuff, that is me, you, the earth, the planets, stars etc, comprises only 5% of the total; the rest is Dark Something or Other.

 

This BBC programme reviews what we currently know/believe about the composition of the universe and how we are working it out.

 

 

 

 

 

The subject will be introduced by Kevin and will consist of 3 short video extracts from the broadcast with time after each video for questions/discussion etc.
The three video extracts are:-
1)         Normal Matter                        :           Baryonic Matter          (5m 32s)
2)         Unknown matter                    :           Dark Matter                (9m 31s)
3)         No idea stuff                            :           Dark Energy                (6m 42s)

If you want to watch the programme it is probably on the BBC iPlayer or you can find in on YouTube at this LINK
Also you can read the “Simple Wikipedia” pages on Normal Matter HERE, Dark Matter HERE and Dark Energy HERE

All are welcome to come along to listen, learn, ask questions, share knowledge or contribute to the general discussion.
Usual time and place : The Kings Head Abergavenny; 7:30pm; Monday 26th Feb.
We look forward to saying Hi on the night.
