Welcome to the website of the Plymouth Astronomical Society (PAS)


Based in Plymouth, Devon, UK - we are a local society that holds meetings every month to enable like minded space enthusiasts to socialise and share our interest!





Message from David Wilton - Chairman


Hello everyone, I'm very pleased to tell you that we shall be resuming our monthly face-to-face meetings in April. The programme for the rest of our year is:


Friday 8th April

Aspects of Astrophotography, by Steve Cooke

Observing the Moon, by Chris Cooke (no relation!)


Friday 13th May

A Brief Look at Globular Clusters, by Phil James


Friday 10th June

Fun Astronomy Quiz - with prizes!

Maybe a brief talk too



Monday 27th June

Multimessenger Astronomy, by Professor John Beckman, Astrophysics Institute of the Canaries (Tenerife)

Please note the day/date which replaces our usual July meeting. The speaker is visiting Plymouth for a few days at this time.

All these meetings will be from 7.30 - 9.30pm in our normal room on the Plymouth University campus, Room - Rolle 002 (Ground floor). There is a map on the Join Us page of our website https://plymouthastro.co.uk/Join-Us/

These meetings are free to those who were members in 2019/20 . Visitors are very welcome and will be asked to pay £2 at the door.

Please note that there will be plenty of time at the meetings for socialising but that no refreshments will be served at the April meeting. We'll review then whether or not to continue with tea/coffee/biscuits. We look forward to seeing everyone again on April 8th and also at outreach and observing events on The Hoe and elsewhere - please watch our Facebook page for announcements of these other meetings.


Best wishes...David
