Foredown Tower Astronomers are a friendly, social group of amateur astronomers that meet once a month to listen to a guest speaker and then enjoy conversation over light refreshments. If the skies are clear members are asked to bring their telescopes for some observing which guests can also join.
Meetings are held at the The Foredown Tower on the 3rd Thursday of each month. Free parking is available on site.
Guests are welcome to all evenings at a cost of £5 (includes refreshments) and should they then wish to join membership costs £20 per 6 months.
CORONAVIRUSPlease note that due to the current pandemic meetings of The Foredown Tower Astronomers have been suspended. We hope to start meeting again as soon as safe and practical (and we have access to the Tower). Please come back to this website from time to time for further updates.Stay safe and clear skies.
