Papworth will be competing with Sawtry and Bedford AS for The Admiral Smyth Trophy in the annual astronomical quiz. Papworth were last year’s winners, but we can’t rest on our laurels!

The Admiral Smyth Trophy was presented by the Bedford Astronomical Society in 1991, the winners in that year. Its named after the astronomer William Henry Smyth (1788–1865), Gold Medallist of the Royal Astronomical Society. After retiring from the Navy, Smyth built and equipped an astronomical observatory at Bedford, where for many years he carried out observations of stars and published works on astronomy.
