Welcome to the Croydon Astronomical Society

Meetings at the Royal Russell School

 • The next meeting at the Royal Russell School is this Friday 10th March at 7:45pm, when Roy Easto will speak to us on: The Cassini Mission. More details here.

Kenley Observatory Openings

 • Our observatory at Kenley is unlikely to be open this Saturday 11th March, partly due to the weather and partly because the main telescope is under maintenance, which will complete soon. Whenever open on a Saturday the public are welcome, just turn up.

Location, facilities and notification of all openings are given here.

We also have an observatory, above, near Kenley aerodrome CR8 5EP. There is also a clubhouse for visiting groups, a kitchen for hot drinks and wireless broadband internet. Schedule meetings here are on some Friday nights for members only, and any Saturday night it is clear for the public as well. We notify just below when this is the case. Parking is nearby, off-road in Hayes Lane just a couple of hundred metres to the south at the Royal Air Force Kenley Tribute.
