As of the 7th November 2017, all public NAA meetings will be held at:

 

Geddington Cricket Club

Northants Amateur Astronomers

1983 to 2017

 

Full membership £30 (Concessions £19)

General Meetings £2 (Non members £3)

Meetings with guest speakers £3 (Non members £4)

 

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 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. Our meeting on the first Tuesday is usually more informal where short presentations are given by members including a presentation on the current night sky and forthcoming astronomical events and weather permitting, observing. On the third Tuesday, the meeting usually consists of a guest speaker from either a UK university or other institution. 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, in astronomy.

Other activities include a quarterly newsletter (In Focus) and access to a well stocked library of books. There are opportunities to join in with visits to places of astronomical interest and weekend observing sessions. There is a variety of telescopes that may be hired for a nominal sum.
