BAS is a friendly welcoming society of approximately 60 like
minded people of varying levels of expertise and ages. Our twice monthly regular meetings held South of Basingstoke cover both the practical and theoretical aspects of astronomy.
You don't have to be a member to come along and see what we get up to.

We meet at Cliddesden Primary School, Cliddesden, RG25 2QU.  on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of every month apart from July and August when there are no scheduled meetings.

Next Events

Our next meeting is on Thursday 22nd March at Cliddesden school which is a 'Main' meeting.

This month we have a members talks session with eight contributors on the topics of either “Why I got started in Astronomy” or “What really interests me in astronomy”.

There may be an observing session on Saturday 17th March at the school to attempt the "Messier Marathon" where we try to observe as many of the deep sky objects in the Messier catalogue as possible. Clearly this is weather dependent so members will be informed via email on the day if it is likely to go ahead.
