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 Emmaus Community Café 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: A Whistle Stop Tour of The Universe

Date: 21st June at 7:30pm

Speaker: Will Joyce

Following on from last year's whistle stop tour of the solar system, Society President Will Joyce is attempting this time to cover the entire universe in an hour or so!

There is a rumour that it might take two talks for him to cover "everything there is", but if he gets his skates on and ignores the 95% we can't find perhaps it's possible! Come along on the 21st and you will discover.


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