I can't thank you enough for the excellent solar scopes, the two talks for the evening and the star gazing.
You have an amazing band of very committed astronomers, you must be very proud.
Hopefully we will run the event again next September and you will be the first on my list to call!
The event was a great success and has helped to raise awareness about our special dark skies.

Public Events

The Cardiff Astronomical Society (CAS) organises regular night sky and occasional solar observing events at its Observatory in Dyffryn Gardens or at locations further afield. The events are either organised by CAS on its own or run in conjunction with other organisations.

In addition, the Society's public outreach team has also answered many hundreds of questions about space and astronomy from our young visitors! Society officers have also made visits to schools and scout etc meetings when requested.

If you have attended one of our events, we would appreciate your feedback:
