Durham Astronomical Society
County Durham's Amateur Astronomers
The society is a group of enthusiastic amateur astronomers who are keen observers. We have meetings once a month with a talk on one particular aspect of astronomy and regularly get together to observe the night sky. We have close links with other astronomical societies in the North East of England, in particular the Cleveland & Darlington Astronomical Society. We also actively support the Wynyard Planetarium and Observatory at Wynyard Woodland Park, helping to arrange observing events and activities for young and old.
Many of our society members are keen astronomical imagers, specialising in CCD work on planets and deep sky objects such as galaxies, star clusters and planetary nebulae.
New members are always welcome, whether knowledgeable in astronomy or a newbie, it's a friendly society where you'll always be made welcome.
We meet at 7:30p.m. on the fourth Friday of every month from September to June (excluding December) at:
