Events & News



Tuesday 26th July.  Tonight we have a guest speaker from Nottingham University. Dr Julian Onions talking about "Galaxies: One Giga-Year at a Time"!


We're not sure what DR. Julian is Doing here but its probably very cold and involves galaxies far, far away!

7:15pm at the  Large Ballroom  in the Grange  Near the Rosse Observatory .  Everyone welcome. 






28th July to 5th September 2016   WYAS will be closed for annual maintenance. Though if you feel the urge to help out please head on down. Jobs range from making tea to painting, decorating, construction work, advanced programming and circuit design and everything in between. Knowing how to use a paint brush is a particularly desirable skill!
