Welcome to Bradford Astronomical Society

We are a friendly group of people who all share a common interest in the universe and its many wonders. Some are more interested in observing using either the societies or their own telescopes and equipment, whilst others are more at home with the study of various aspects of the technical side of astronomy.

Whatever your interest may be, and no matter whether you are an expert or a complete beginner you will be made most welcome.

We have a very active observing section of the society, and this is complemented by our regular meetings with excellent speakers giving talks on a wide variety of subjects, often with slide shows or video presentations. There really is something for everyone no matter what your particular interest in astronomy.

Please check out the meetings link for a complete list of this season’s speakers and activities.

Members of the public are wecome to join us for an observing session, however you will need to contact the society via the website or come along to one of our Monday meetings at Idle and Thackley Conservative club for details of when and where we meet. Non members are allowed three free visits to our observing sessions after which they will be expected to join the club. Observing resumes early September.
