Welcome to the Nene Valley Astronomical Society website.
Note that there is no meeting in May at Sudborough due to the village hall being used as a polling station on our usual first Thursday of the month evening.
Based in East Northamptonshire, the Nene Valley Astronomical Society (NVAS) exists to promote and advance the science of astronomy in this area, both amongst it’s members and the public.
We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website. If you have any questions or require any further information about the society or astronomy in general then please contact the groups co-ordinator, Steve Williams on 01933 650331 or 07443 605990. Alternatively e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
