AAS

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 : 24th Feb., 2020

Our next meeting will be a presentation by Dr Matthew Smith from the Astronomy Group at the Cardiff School of Physics and Astronomy.

Dr Matthew Smith : Cardiff School of Physics & Astronomy

 

Dr Smith’s research is focused on dust and gas (basically any stuff between stars!), and how they relate to star-formation in the galaxy.  He works with data from many facilities (including ALMA, VLA, Arecibo, Mopra), in particular is leading a new large JCMT survey, a 275 hr survey to map the entire Andromeda galaxy at 450 and 850 microns.
His research also relies on data from the Herschel Space Observatory, where he has leading roles in the HELGA survey of Andromeda, H-ATLAS, the Herschel Reference Survey (HRS) and the Herschel Virgo Cluster Survey (HeViCS).
He is also on the executive committee for JINGLE the largest survey with the JCMT, a member of the MeerKat Fornax Survey and Mongoose MeerKat surveys.  (note: nothing to do with zoos or insurance!!).

Come along and learn a bit more about our universe.  No knowledge necessary!

All are welcome.  Usual time and place, The Kings Head, Abergavenny, at 7:30pm
