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: Apollo 11 - The Inside Story

Date: 21st November 2019 at 7:30pm

Speaker: Dr. David Whitehouse

Following publication earlier this year of 'Apollo 11 - The Inside Story', David's latest book has received many great reviews.

Telling the story through quotes and writings of those involved in the mission, the book aims to tell this momentous story using the voices of those on the inside and not from what was observed on the outside.


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