Welcome to your universe.
Auckland Astronomical Society was founded in 1923, and with over 600 members, is the largest amateur astronomy group in New Zealand. We are based at Stardome Observatory and Planetarium in the shadow of Maungakiekie/One Tree Hill, and we’re passionate about sharing our love for astronomy with the people of Auckland.
Meeting on the first four Mondays of every month, the AAS is an incredibly lively and active organisation, and there is something for everyone of all ages, all experience levels and all interests. If you have a love of the night sky, and a passion about the universe around us, you’ll find a warm welcome at the Society.
