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.
