Welcome to the LaMAS web site. This site is developed and maintained by LaMAS to provide astronomical resource to local amateur astronomers.
The Lancaster and Morecambe Astronomical Society was formed in 1978 to provide a friendly forum for local amateur astronomers and people interested in all things astronomical. The society caters for everyone interested in Astronomy, from beginners to experts, from amateurs to Professional Astronomers, of all ages. We currently have about 50 members.
The society meets once per month, at 7:30 pm on the first Wednesday of the month. We meet in the small meeting room of the Church of the Ascension, Junction of Michaelson Road/ Lancaster Road, Torrisholme. Click for a Map and Directions.
The Society holds 10 meetings per year (from September to June) on a variety of topics. Why not browse through the list of forthcoming presentations?
Each meeting is £1.50, including tea/coffee and biscuits. Under 18s are free!
Annual Membership is £10.00 (subscriptions run from January - January)
