Welcome to West Yorkshire Astronomical Society

a Registered Charity (Charity Number 508313).

 

 

Tuesday (29th November) will be

 

OPEN NIGHT!

 

So come on down 

 

 

 

Doors open at 7:30pm.

 

As usual (Members £3. Non members £4, Children free if accompanied by an adult)

 

 

Friday 9th December. Not one but two talks! from our Patron Professor Jonti Horner. 

Yes Jonti is coming back from Australia for a little while and will be talking about two massive research projects he's working on including spotting fireballs over the Australian dessert with a view to finding any debris that may be left and "Minerva Australis" looking for exoplanets!

 

If you have been to one of Jonti's talks you will know how good he is at making complex issues understandable and the phenomenal way he can link seemingly disparate subjects together. It will be thoroughly entertaining and will include a question and answer session which he excels at!
