Successful "Star Attractions" event held on 19th January
The Society, alongside several other organisations, was fully involved in this day of interest and fun at the National Museum Cardiff on Saturday, 19th January 2019 - as shown by the pictures below and opposite!
Seven thousand people - young and old, experienced in astronomy or completely new to the subject - made it through the Museum's doors and were entertained by an array of items including telescopes on display, information on astronomy available at the various stalls, the Museum's meteorite collection, talks and the ability to be photographed in the Buzz Aldrin cardboard cutout! Representatives from CAS and the other astronomical societies present were also on hand to give helpful advice on buying telescopes and the benefits of joining a local astronomical society.
More information about the day - and additional photos - can be seen here.
