The meetings are held at in the Pavilion adjacent to the Observatory in Watery Lane – there is a map and full address details here.
In addition to our normal club night each Thursday, VAS has monthly meetings, with guest speakers, throughout the year.
These meetings are open to all. No charge is made but you are very welcome to make a donation to our Society funds.
Please be aware that details may change. You can check the current details using the Contact Form.
Monthly meetings are held at 19.30hrs on the fourth Friday of every month except for the August AGM which starts at 19.00hrs, and December when there is no meeting
Meetings are usually divided into two parts:
- First is a presentation by our guest speaker
- a short break for refreshment and then
- Second is a review of news and astronomical highlights for the next month.
