Next public observing session 

Proposed November observing at Ruislip Lido cancelled

As a result of health concerns, it has reluctantly been decided to cancel public observing at Ruislip Lido this year. We hope that the situation will improve sufficiently for an event to take place in March 2022.

WOLAS Members' Weekend Observing trips

Spring 2021 & 2022

Due to government Coronavirus restrictions our annual observing trip to Llanerchindda Farm in mid-Wales has had to be abandoned for 2021.

Those who booked for 2020, whose places were moved forward to 2021, are being offered priority on the event in 2022 at Llanerchindda but it is hoped that some extra places for others wanting to come will be available nearer the event. The 2022 trip will be over the weekend of   Friday 29th April  to  Monday 2nd May 2022, which do note is a bank holiday.
