Auckland Astronomical Society

Contact information



The Auckland Astronomical Society was founded in 1922 and today has more than 500 members. The Society meets at the Stardome Observatory in Auckland on most Mondays (except January) offering a wide range of interesting talks and activities for members. Regular star parties are held at a dark site for casual observing. Facilities available to members include an excellent borrowing library, rental telescopes, DVD recordings of guest speakers and events; a monthly Journal of over 20 pages. A number of our members are volunteers at the Stardome; others are actively involved in astronomical research.
