Welcome to Swansea Astronomical Society

Due to the developing situation with COVID-19 and its upgraded status as a pandemic, the SAS Committee have taken the decision to suspend Society events until further notice. It is likely we will not reconvene until the autumn, but we will keep Society members informed by email/on our events page. We realise this will be a disappointment to our members, but given our older demographic and members with underlying conditions we wish to err on the side of caution. Stay safe, everyone.

Swansea Astronomical Society is the oldest astronomical society in Wales - established 13th February 1948.

The aim of the Society has always been "to further the knowledge of and to stimulate public interest in the science of Astronomy, also to promote and conduct research into problems related thereto" and this is as relevant to today's Society as it was in 1948.

The Society meets every second and fourth Thursday of the month, October through to May when speakers, from within or outside the Society, accept the Society's invite to talk on all matters astronomical. These meetings are being held at Technium 2, SA1 from November 2018. See our Member Events page for details of forthcoming events.

The Society has achieved a recent prominence in the field of astrophotography with several members exploiting the relatively recent advances in CCD and CMOS imaging, which have brought professional results within the grasp of the amateur astronomer.
