Next meeting 8:00pm on Friday 5 February 2016: 'Astronomy from the Great War to the Cold War', a talk presented by Dr Mike Legget

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

This period is the dawning of the New Astronomy: new ideas, new discoveries and technological advances. It fashions the Future through which we now live.
