About this Event

Admission is free and visitors are always welcome but you must register if you are not a member as spaces are limited.

"The discovery of an planet orbiting a Sun-like star in 1995 sparked a quarter-century of research. In this talk we will look at how we hunt for exoplanets, some of the incredible systems observed so far, and what the future holds for this exciting field."

Visitors are welcome at our meetings, but because of the popularity of our talks, visitors must register for a free ticket as visitor spaces are limited. Visitors can also leave after the main talk or are welcome to stay on for the rest of the meeting.

Also at our meetings:

  • What’s in the night sky this month
  • Overview of astronomy and space news
  • Occasional member presentations
