About the Society

Vectis Astronomical Society Observatory

The Watery Lane Observatory

Vectis Astronomical Society meet every Thursday evening at the observatory in Watery Lane Newchurch – Members of the public are welcome after 8pm. Our website is at www.wightastronomy.org and there are further details (including a map) there.

We offer free advice, stargazing (weather permitting) and tours of the observatory. There is no charge but you are welcome to make a donation 😉

Please Note: Space inside the observatory is limited, if you are a large group (more than 5 or 6) please contact the Observatory Director before your visit.

We are working with the Isle of Wight Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to gain International Dark-Sky Association recognition for at least part of the Island. You can follow this project at www.darkwightskies.com.
