Cardiff Astronomical Society Star Parties

Cardiff Astronomical Society have an excellent Observatory in the grounds of Dyffryn Gardens, which is situated in St Nicholas just outside Cardiff on the A48 Cardiff to Cowbridge Road.

This is where our star parties are held, they are aimed at beginners to Astronomy of all ages. They consist of talks, demonstrations of the night sky real time or Stellarium and an introduction to the various types of telescopes.

These "Star Parties" are ideal for our junior members and anyone else who wants to learn their way around the night sky. Each event will start with a general sky tour.

We concentrating on brighter Messier objects, the Moon and bright planets.

Star Parties will run from 7.30 to 9.30 p.m. unless otherwise stated.

There will be at least two (usually more) CAS members on duty between 7:30 and 9:30 pm (19:30 and 21:30).

Don't forget it's your society, so come along and have a good time.
