Newtown Astronomy Society will host its latest meeting on Saturday with the theme 'Moon, from myth to landings.'

The talk will be given by Pete Williamson FRAS at TheCrypt, Newtown Catholic Church, Longbridge at 7pm.

It will focus on 50 years since the Apollo moon landings.

Pete has been doing Astronomy since 1967 and undertaken many university certificated courses with East Lancs and John Moore’s Universities.

In 2012 he started imaging and observing the Sun from a scientific point of view, later landing the position of BBC Radio Shropshire’s Resident Astronomer. In 2015 he set up and built Astro Radio, an Astronomical and Music Station broadcasting to 20,000 plus listeners World wide, which is
the mouthpiece of the annual Solarsphere Astronomical and Music Festival.

Full membership fees are just £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 and a monthly “sky update” feature by Tony Cook of Aberystwyth University brings the meeting to a close.

Members are also encouraged to bring along their own observations and
photographs for display or inclusion within Tony’s presentation.
