We are a small club of amateur astronomy enthusiasts who share a common passion and curious wonderment for our amazing night skies.
Between September and June, we meet on the second Friday of each month at Pyle Church Hall where guest speakers and club members give talks on various subjects followed by Q&As.
Each well-illustrated talk provides an opportunity to speak with people who are well informed, knowledgeable and are often very highly regarded in their fields of expertise.
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.
Bridgend Astronomical Society is a small, friendly society. Some of us are keen observers, some are quite content just to attend our interesting monthly meetings. We are happy to accommodate all interested people. Membership is not very expensive.
