Main Meetings

Each month, the society has a guest speaker, who will talk about their specialised subject, followed by a "what's up" describing the sky that month and sometimes an additional 5-minute talk from a society member on something they have been doing recently. Free refreshments are available during the interval. During the year we will also be arranging observing evenings at appropriate times and places.

Note: if you have something that you would like to talk about in the 5-minute slot, please contact a committee member.
