The Wellington Astronomical Society has a membership of about 75, which includes a number of student members.

Meetings: Are held at Carter Observatory in Kelburn., on the first Wednesday of the month (except January). Our Research Astronomy Group begins at 6:30pm on meeting nights, followed at 7:30pm by the social meeting open to any interested persons. Our main areas of research interest are Occultations and Variable Stars.

Observing: Each month there are two regular observing evenings, that are usually held at Tawa College. The society also has links with a dark-sky site at Pauatahanui equipped with a Meade LX200 30 cm telescope, the Gifford Observatory with a 13 cm Zeiss refractor, and the Carter Observatory’s Thomas King Observatory which houses a 14 cm Grubb-Parsons refractor.
