It'll be all about ancient Egyptians and their astronomy at next weekend's meeting of the Newtown Astronomy Society.

The society, which meets once a month at the Scout Hut in Park Lane, will be given a talk by Dr Pauline Norris Phd.

"Our first talk for the new year is a follow to Pauline's previous talk given in 2016 "Ancient Egyptians and their Astronomy". Dr Pauline Norris PhD who lives in Newtown and is an Egyptologist and amateur astronomer has just returned from her latest Egyptian exploration, so come and find out what grows in the desert by moonlight, who swallowed the sun and the latest news on the pyramids," said Les Fry, secretary of the society.

"If you are interested in ancient Egypt and the history of astronomy, you will not be disappointed."

Tony Cook of Aberystwyth University will also be at the meeting with his monthly “sky update” feature, which includes astro TV listings and events to look out for, along with Member's Observations.
?"Please bring along any images you've taken on a dongle and we'll show them to fellow colleagues for you in the Member's Observations section," added Mr Fry.??"If you need help with your telescope or advice about getting one please ask colleagues at our meeting. Subjects for later in the season include The Apollo Legacy, Exoplanets, Remote Imaging and a Planetarium night."

Te society's annual membership fees are £20 per annum (10 meetings per year), with visitor fees at £3.50 per meeting.

Tea or Coffee with biscuits are available at a cost of 50p per cup from the start of the meeting. Raffle prizes are up for grabs during the main break.
