Next meeting 8:00pm on Friday 9 December 2016: Astromeet

All our meetings are open to the public and visitors are always welcome.

The last Astromeet of the year! In these days of low winter Sun, why not reminisce about events during 2016 or look at new observations acquired during the present frosty dark nights. Also, the elements series arrives at helium and its place in Astronomy. REMINDER to Shropshire 2017 hopefuls: places are restricted, only paying your deposit secures your place.
