The Wellington Astronomical Society is an incorporated society for anyone who is interested in stars, planets, space or any other topic related to astronomy.

Members includes experienced and distinguished astronomers, but we also cater for the interest of beginners who come from a diverse range of age groups and professions.

The aim is to let people enjoy astronomy through a friendly and helpful atmosphere, with one of the ideas being that you get out of it what you take part in. If you’d like to get involved, please consider joining up. The link on the navigation bar will take you to membership information and on-line membership form.


Every month except January, meetings are organised (usually on the first Wednesday of the month) with talks on astronomy topics from people who know what they’re talking about. Talks are usually given with the assumption that some members of the audience may have little or no experience in the topic.

Even if you’re not a member, you’re welcome to come along and see what it’s like. Information on the next meeting is available on the meetings page by clicking the “Monthly Meeting” link in the “Recent Website Posts” menu.

Prior to the regular monthly meeting the research groups meet. Others are welcome to attend to see what this is all about.
