Welcome to the Wakefield and District Astronomical Society Website
Our Society was started by a few people who got together on the Star Gazer's Lounge forum wanting to get together for a few local star gazing meets, after about 6 month's there were a few of us now meeting up locally who all had a different range of scopes and knowledge of the night sky. Since then, the society has continued to go from strength to strength.
Keep an eye on our SGL events thread for the latest updates on our events.
Our next society meeting is the on Thursday January the 19th at 7:30pm
Our guest speaker for our second meeting this month is professional astrophysicist Mega Argo from the University of Manchester's Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics
