The West of London Astronomical Society invites you to observe the Moon and stars from Ruislip Lido.

If the sky is clear, a crescent moon will be visible, we may also be able to see objects including Venus, the Orion Nebula, the Seven Sisters star cluster, the Andromeda Galaxy and maybe the Crab Nebula.
Bring your family and friends. Members of WOLAS will be on hand using a variety of telescopes and will be able to answer any questions you may have.

Don’t forget to wear warm clothing and bring a torch. To prevent dazzling observers, please limit the brightness of your torch to your phone’s light or equivalent and point it down when on site.

On nights when observing is possible, the Turntable tea room will be open for refreshments, courtesy of the Lido Railway. Toilets are available.

Please visit our website for more information. A GO/NO GO call will be posted no later than 4pm each day.
