Welcome to B.A.S.

Welcome to the home of Bedford Astronomical Society.

Please feel free to browse the site and see who we are and what we do. You are welcome to get in touch to ask about the society, or general questions on astronomy.

Our site is mobile-friendly as well, so you can get us on the move as well!

BAS, Bedford School and CORVID-19/Coronavirus

With regret, and following the latest advice from the School, Government and Health services, all observing and speaker meetings are now postponed until further notice.

This also includes the planned AGM on the 8th April.

Once it is safe for us to do, we will resume planning our usual calendar of meetings and events. In the meantime, we will keep you updated with interesting news and articles from the astronomical community.

 

Please stay safe during this challenging time, and we hope conditions return to something close to normal in the near future

 

With all best wishes from the BAS Committee
