Welcome to WDAS

Our next event is the AGM and members meeting. It will take place on Monday, 10 June. In addition to the AGM there will be a gallery of members astronomy photographs on display, a selection of telescopes with various popular mounts that members can examine, astronomy books and a display of science-based curios. Everyone is encouraged to bring along any favourite astronomy related equipment, books or items to encourage ‘show-and-tell’ discussion. We hope that as many members as possible will attend as this will be an opportunity to socialise and chat about all things astronomy related. As usual it will be held at Nazarene Theological College.

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. We ask all members and guests to be courteous, tolerant and respectful at all times.

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) at Nazarene Theological College. [click here for directions & location]. If attending in person please familiar yourself with the fire safety instructions [here]. 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.
