About Us > What We Do

Wycombe Astronomical Society is a friendly and active society bringing the wonders of astronomy to all who live in South Buckinghamshire and the Chilterns.

We have over a 100 members of all ages and levels of astronomical knowledge from beginners through to advanced amateurs, and a lively observing community. We have our own observatory permanently located at Woodrow High House near Amersham in Buckinghamshire and regularly get together to observe during the observing season.

There is a busy calendar with monthly lectures and practical meetings (see the home page). Guest speakers provide us with informative lectures on the third Wednesday of each month and on the first Thursday of each month we meet to discuss the practical side of astronomy (or, if the weather is clear, we get outside observing).

As well as this we have society trips and group get-togethers throughout the year including our annual barbeque in August to coincide with the Perseid meteor shower.

Our website offers a wealth of information about the Society and astronomy. We hope you enjoy this website and what our society has to offer. If you would like to know more please feel free to contact us.
