Foredown Tower Astronomers are a friendly, social group of amateur astronomers that meet once a month to listen to a guest speaker and then enjoy conversation over light refreshments. If the skies are clear members are asked to bring their telescopes for some observing which guests can also join.

Meetings are held at the The Foredown Tower on the 3rd Thursday of each month. Free parking is available on site.

Guests are welcome to all evenings at a cost of £5 (includes refreshments) and should they then wish to join membership costs £20 per 6 months.

Next Meeting: Titan - A Candidate For Evolution?

Date: 17th October 2019 at 7:30pm

Speaker: Melanie Davies - Creative Space

The talk gives an overview of this Earth-like world and the space missions that have paid it a visit. This extraordinary moon is discussed in detail in this captivating presentation, which features scientific findings, audio and visual recordings from the Huygens Lander, and ideas about the existence of Titanites. The presentation is full of exceptional images – both from orbit and on the surface – and is delivered in easy-to-understand language, explaining the more difficult concepts in layman’s terms.


If clear skies are forecast please bring your telescope and there will be some observing after the talk.
