Welcome to the WAS website

Wellington Astronomical Society is an incorporated society and registered charity for promoting astronomy in and around the Wellington region.

Our next regular meeting will be held on the first Wednesday in April, that is the 5th of April at Space Place/Carter Observatory.  More details about this upcoming meeting will be posted here and on our Facebook page closer to the date.

A gentle reminder that our subscription year began in September, so WAS looks forward to receiving your subscription renewal if you haven’t done so already.  Renewal information can be found here.
