Stargazing Event

All are welcome to this free public observing session in Lancaster's Williamson Park on the evening of 24th February 2023. If the weather is clear we'll have fine views of the moon, star clusters, nebulae and maybe a galaxy or two through LaMAS member's telescopes. We'll also have a set of talks throughout the evening on Astronomy and Space in the Park Cafe. If the clouds roll in, we'll still run the talks.

We look forward to seeing there.

We meet every month from September through to June. You do not have to be a member to attend a meeting, they are all open to the public. Just come along, pay £2.50 to cover society expenses, and become a member for the night. Or we have 2 yearly subscription options : Annual subscription £20 or Family Subscription £30 for spouses, partners, members of the same family and 2 or more people living in the same household (each of which run from January to January). For under 18s it is even better, everything is free!
