Hosted at the Newtown Catholic Church Crypt on Long Bridge Street (SY16 2BJ), this gathering of astronomy aficionados will kick off at 6:30 pm and continue until 9:30 pm.
The highlight of the evening will be a fascinating presentation on "Comet Chasing" by Cai Stoddard-Jones, a graduate student from Cardiff University who is also the student winner of the prestigious PlanetaryScience4All video contest.
Cai's talk is expected to shed light on the mysteries of comets, their celestial significance, and the thrill of chasing them across the night sky. Whether you're an amateur astronomer or simply intrigued by the cosmos, this talk promises to be both educational and inspiring.
Following Cai's presentation, attendees will have the opportunity to engage in social activities and practical astronomical pursuits.
As the meeting nears its end, Tony Cook will take the stage to provide a comprehensive review of "What's On" in the world of astronomy for the upcoming month.
