Welcome to the Cleethorpes & District Astronomical Society, founded in 1969 and located at Beacon Hill Allotments, Cleethorpes. We have our own lecture room and observatory containing a 16 inch Newtonian/Cassegrain telescope as well as other smaller telescopes. Regular monthly meetings are held on the first Wednesday of every month with invited speakers who give talks on a range of astronomical topics. We also run beginners' sessions from September to May once a month on Friday evenings which are open to everyone.


2019 is the 50th anniversary of the society and to celebrate we are hosting a special evening at the observatory on Saturday 7th September at 7.00pm. There will be a welcome drink, a talk ‘CDAS at 50 – An Age of Discovery’ by Peter Rea, a CDAS Founder Member and a buffet followed by an observing session if clear. Entry is only by pre-purchased tickets (£5.00). For further information and to apply for tickets contact Sue Parr,

The new beginners’ sessions will be starting on Friday 13th September. They are open to anyone and you may join at any stage.
