Thank you for visiting the website of the Blackpool & District Astronomical Society.

BADAS was founded in October 1986 by keen local amateur astronomers from around the Fylde. Our society has around thirty members, with a wide cross-section from novices to experienced observers.

Meetings take place on a regular basis on the second Monday of each month. They are friendly, relaxed and fairly informal and all are welcome to attend.

** Beginners are very welcome **

On this website you can find:

  • The latest society news
  • Information about the Society - who we are, where to find us etc.
  • Info about observing the night sky
  • Links to local weather forecasts
  • Details of Society meetings and events
  • A gallery of members' astrophotography
  • Links to other interesting astronomy/space sites
If you have any questions about the society, or comments regarding the website, please go to the Contact page.
