Astronomy

At each meeting we receive a presentation on a chosen subject from a group member or guest speaker and we point out any astronomical highlights for the next month. We meet in group members homes from 3 pm till 5 pm, normally on the 4th Wednesday of the month, but we are flexible to meet group members commitments. Coffee and biscuits are always provided at our meetings and each one turns into a lively social gathering. New members are always welcome. You can contact the group by email: Astronomy@WelshpoolAndDistrictU3A.org.uk
