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&A.
Each talk provides an opportunity to speak with people who are well informed, knowledgeable and are often very highly regarded in their fields of expertise.
In addition (and weather permitting), we hold observation sessions where club members can bring their own telescopes and binoculars or make use of equipment provided by the club itself.
Society members come from all walks of life with wide ranging levels of knowledge and experiences and, as like minded amateurs, we welcome anyone with a genuine interest in astronomy.
Bridgend Astronomical Society has around 35 members, many of whom are active observers and participate in regular observations sessions. Astrophotography and astrocomputing are popular with members and many have constructed their own telescopes.
