About Us

The Letchworth & District Astronomical Society (LDAS) is based in Letchworth, Hertfordshire.

Previously known as the Stevenage & District Astronomical Society, LDAS moved to a new home in 1991, and the society changed its name to reflect the move.

With over 100 members from all over the region, ranging from interested amateurs to those with sophisticated home observatories, LDAS is a friendly and welcoming society whose main aim is to promote the enjoyment of looking to the stars through meetings and public events.


LDAS has a committee of members, elected to run the society on the members behalf.


The LDAS constitution provides the guidance for the committee and can be found here.
