Welcome to WDAS

The next event will be our Members Christmas Evening on 12 December 2022. This will take place at Cavendish Road Primary School. Join us for some festive cheer – with Christmas nibbles and soft drinks together with presentations from our astrophotographers plus a ‘magic mirror’, pop-up planetarium and telescope/equipment display!

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 will resume meetings at Cavendish Road Primary School from February 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.
