Welcome to WDAS

Our next talk will take place on the first Monday in February (Monday, 07 February) to avoid Valentine’s Day and is entitled ‘Exoplanet Update’ by Dr. Dimitris Stamatellos (UCLan). We hope to run this talk in person at the school as well as via Zoom but this is subject to change depending on the situation with Covid at the time. Please check back here. If you wish to attend by Zoom and have not received a link for the talk by Sunday, 06 February, or would like to attend as a new member please email the society at: wdas.chair@gmail.com.

Observing trip, Anglesey – March 2018

West Didsbury Astronomical Society was formed to bring people together who have an interest in Astronomy. If you are interested in astronomy and you’re in the Manchester (UK) area come and meet other local astronomers. 

Everyone is welcome from the complete beginner to the more experienced astronomer. There are regular meetings during the year and ad hoc observing sessions.

For further details – please feel free to attend a society meeting – meetings are usually held on the second Monday of every month (except in August). We hope to resume meetings at Cavendish Road Primary School from March 2022. [click here for detailed directions] We may also provide live streaming (via zoom) talks as a further option for those who cannot attend in person.

Meetings run from 7pm – 9pm.
