'A History of Women in Astronomy' by Mary McIntyre FRAS
The Zoom meeting will start at 7.30pm and is FREE. Any non-members who wish to attend should Contact Us for details.
Our group is open to everyone with an interest in Astronomy, no matter whether you're a casual observer, armchair astronomer or dedicated astro-photographer. The night sky belongs to everybody and we welcome all comers, whatever age, experience or background!
Astronomy is arguably the oldest science & it is accessible by all. Our society was formed in 1859 and is the oldest surviving amateur Astronomy group in England. Currently we have about 50 members.
Newcomers are welcome to try us out before you decide to join - no obligation!
You will find all you need to know about our meetings, activities and observing sessions on this website. Obviously Covid-19 has limited what we have been able to do this year, with no public observing sessions and no public outreach events, but the society still meets virtually via Zoom and our Groups.io 'chatline'.
Membership rates for 2022 have been held at the reduced 2021 rates (i.e. £5 less than normal).
