Northants Amateur Astronomers was founded in 1983 as the Kettering and District Amateur Astronomers’ Society by its current President, Nick Freville.

Activities of the group centre around our fortnightly meetings, normally held on the first and third Tuesday of the month.  You will have the chance to attend a variety of lecture meetings and participate in informal discussion in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. During the meetings, short presentations are given by members and, weather permitting, observing is carried out or a guest speaker with great astronomy expertise gives a talk . See the Meetings page for up-to-date information of the evening events.  All lectures are aimed at a popular non-technical level and can thus be enjoyed by all, no matter what experience they may have, or not have, in astronomy.

Other activities include a newsletter (In Focus) and there are opportunities to join in with visits to places of astronomical interest.




Northants Amateur Astronomers are a registered charity in England and Wales. Charity Number: 1029891
