Welcome to B.A.S.

BAS online shop is now open, items include jackets, gloves, hoodies and polo shirts, visit our shop here.

We are a growing and enthusiastic society of 50+ astronomy enthusiasts who share a common passion and curious wonderment for our amazing night skies. Between September and June, we meet each month, we have guest speakers and club members giving talks on various subjects followed by Q&As.

B.A.S. is a friendly society. Some of us are keen observers, some are quite content just to attend our interesting monthly meetings. We accommodate people of all ages and abilities.

We also offer a beginners course to our members, our first course this year has allready seen it fill quickly, and we are now taking names for the next one with a closing date of 26th of October 2020. Membership forms can be found in the membership section.

Check our Facebook pages for dates and times, including upto the minute observation sessions. Weather permitting, we hold observation sessions where club members can bring their own telescopes or binoculars or make use of equipment provided by the club. We have access to a good, dark, and secure observing site. Society members come from all walks of life with wide ranging levels of knowledge and experiences and we welcome anyone with a genuine interest in astronomy. Beginners are especially welcome, no experience or telescope necessary! We will assist all members to use their telescopes as effectively as possible.
