CAS event with Society for Popular Astronomy at Cardiff University on 29th September 2018

Thanks! Really enjoyed yesterday's session, including catching up with Megan and Ian. Phil's talk set me a challenge for a future talk "Five fantastic names for things in Astronomy". I have two off the top of my head, working on the others.

Stargazing at Brecon Beacons on 14th October 2017
My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed the Stargazing event held in Brecon yesterday. The initial talk on the life cycle of a star was both informative and very entertaining (for both an 11 year old and a 46 year old!) and was very balanced in providing enough 'techie' information but not so much to scare beginners off.
The outside portion of the evening, looking at stars through telescopes, was well set up and the people manning the scopes were very friendly and helped with both using the scopes and expalining what we were looking at.
This was a great introduction to Stargazing but more importantly was a good introduction to the CAS, which we now intend on joining :-)

Lotta, Angela and myself enjoyed the event very much. It was really nice to meet you both, thank you both so much for dropping off the photo of Tim Peake for Lotta at home on Sunday, very kind of you.
We will download the photos and videos you have sent us through email, they will be a great help for Lotta's ongoing school projects, thank you.
Wishing you all at Cardiff astronomical society, clear skies and lots of new discoveries out in the universe.
Best regards
Mark, Angela and Lotta

National Science Week - Junior Event in 2014 at Dyffryn Gardens
Really good day, helped by fact weather was fab! It was well organised but could have been better advertised through schools maybe as ten more kids would have attended? Max was chuffed to win the competition and has always had an active interest in science and all It involves. :)

The event was fabulous. Not only did my boys love it so did I. There was not one thing they didn't enjoy. I was only expecting to stay for half day but we just had to stay for it all. I hope you do another. Very well done.
