Welcome to MARS

MARS is an informal astronomical society that meets the second Tuesday of each calendar month (except August). We gather at the Science Department, Monmouth School in the small town of Monmouth, Wales, UK. Membership is open to anyone, regardless of age, knowledge or experience. Meetings start at 19.30 and usually finish at 21.30. There is no annual membership fee; members simply pay £1 per meeting they attend and students/under 18s attend free.

During the Covid-19 (coronavirus) pandemic we suspended all face to face meetings and used Zoom. We hope to reconvene in September 2021. See the 'meetings 2020-21' page.
