Our inaugural meeting was on the 8th Nov 2010 and we officially formed in Feb 2011.
AAS holds monthly meetings, often 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.

We host discussions on subjects as varied as "finding your way around the sky" to "Dark Energy".

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

Next Meeting : 25th November

This meeting will be one of our open “round the table” discussions. I have listed a number of suggested topics that we may cover, further details HERE.

Round the Table


Please remember that this is an open session. My topics are mere suggestions, which I will prepare some info for. However, if there is any topic that has baffled – intrigued – or just caught your attention then please bring it along with you. I am sure someone will have a view to share!

Suggested Topics:-
1) Transits. There are three bodies that provide us with solar transits, Mercury, Venus and the Moon. We also have exo-planet transits to investigate now.
2) The Solar System. Looking at the earliest written record of an aurora and the news that Voyager 2, launched in 1977, has now crossed into interstellar space.
3) Our galaxy, the Milky Way. The discovery of the first confirmed inter stellar comet to enter the solar system.
4) The Cosmos. Including a claim that the agreed shape of the universe is wrong, another suggestion that wormholes exist, heavy elements from neutron stars, a new gravitational wave detector and how big, or small, can a black hole be?
5) Dark Energy. More claims but few conclusions on dark energy.

Usual time and place; 7:30pm at the Kings Head, Abergavenny.
Come along and share your knowledge and/or questions. No expertise expected!
