This group meetd at the IoA on Monday evenings from 7.15pm - 8.45 pm.

Usually the day will be the first Monday of the month, but in January we tend to delay it because of new year. We also take a break in the summer holidays.
Each evening there will be four short talks presented by senior members of the CAA. We do experiments, some of which even work, and if it is clear, there will be some observing with the telescopes at the Institute.
Click here for confirmation of dates and the topics for each event.
This group is aimed at both our adult members and our youngsters ages 11+. We aim for a more informal and cozy atmosphere.


Once a year we organize a trip to somewhere astronomical, such as to the National Space Center in Leicester, the Royal Observatory at Greenwich, the Science Museum in London or an IMAX cinema visit (often combined with the Science Museum visit).

We also do star parties, visits to places of interest and other events which will be listed on the website.
