Who we are

The Usk Astronomical Society was formed in 1974 and has met every week during term time since then.
It has many telescopes and other astronomical equipment for use by members.
We also use the equipment, including our planetarium, in talks which members give to schools and other organisations.
We have an extensive library of astronomical books and videos which can be borrowed by members.
