Swansea Astronomical Society is the oldest astronomical society in Wales - established 13th February 1948.

The aim of the Society has always been "to further the knowledge of and to stimulate public interest in the science of Astronomy, also to promote and conduct research into problems related thereto" and this is as relevant to today's Society as it was in 1948.

The Society meets every second and fourth Thursday of the month, October through to May when speakers, from within or outside the Society, accept the Society's invite to talk on all matters astronomical. These meetings were formerly at Swansea University, but are now being held at the UWTSD Campus, IQ Building in SA1. See our Society Talks page for details of forthcoming events.

The Society has achieved a recent prominence in the field of astrophotography with several members exploiting the relatively recent advances in CCD and CMOS imaging, which have brought professional results within the grasp of the amateur astronomer.
