Founded as the Croydon Group of the Junior Astronomical Society on 5th May 1956, and becomming the Croydon Astronomical Society in 1965.

The Society holds lecture evenings at the Royal Russell School, Coombe Lane, Croydon, Surrey CR9 5BX. These are held every other Friday during school term time. More information on dates and our lectures are in the Meetings page. Lectures start at 7:45 pm and finish around 10 pm. There is free parking and very good public transport links.

We also have an observatory, above, near Kenley aerodrome CR8 5EP. Besides hosting several instruments there is a clubhouse for visiting groups, a kitchen for hot drinks and wireless broadband internet. Parking is nearby, off-road in Hayes Lane.

Currently closed to the public until early September, due to the skies not being dark until late.
