Really like the friendly club. It's well run and they get fantastic speakers to attend.
Excellent speakers on a regular basis and a very well run and well organised society.
Friendly people, interesting talks, a good evening out – in the warm and dry!”
An enthusiastic, friendly bunch
Socialising, Networking, Assistance, Closeness to like minded people. Meeting with like minded people with who I can share my interests in person Many people in the amateur astronomy hobby like to share the experience with others.
The talks always stretch the little grey cells and get my son to put down his phone for a while
ESAS meetings are enjoyable and very informative for amateur astronomers. Members swap information with each other to assist with understanding astronomy.
