Plymouth Astronomical Society


Welcome to the website of the Plymouth Astronomical Society!

In these strange times we are currently experiencing why not enjoy some Royal Institution lectures?  Here is one on "What Happened At The Beginning Of Time" on YouTube and from here you will be able to find more talks.

Here you will find out about our society, including our forthcoming programme of meetings.


If you want to get in touch with us, please visit our Contact us page.  And if you want to become a member, please visit our Join us page.
