Newtown Astronomy Society gets its new season underway next weekend with a talk about cosmology and understanding the universe.

Sue Walker, an Associate Lecturer for the Open University, a keen amateur astronomer and NAS member, will give an illustrated talk which aims to explain the basics of cosmology.

The event takes place at The Crypt at Newtown Catholic Church in Long Bridge Street at 7pm.

Full membership fees are £20 per annum (10 meetings per year), with visitor fees at £3.50 per meeting.

Light refreshments are available during the meeting, with raffle prizes up for grabs during the main break, ending with a monthly “sky update” feature by Tony Cook of Aberystwyth University and members visual and photographic observations.

"If you have a telescope or binoculars that don't seem to work as you think they should, the "instructions" seem unfathomable or you simply need some advice on your scope, bring it along and we'll see what we can do to assist you," said Les Fry, secretary of NAS.

"We can also offer advice about getting a telescope, so please ask colleagues at our meetings or contact us by email."
