Founded in 1942, the Cambridge University Astronomical Society (CUAS) prides itself on many years of continuous and active existence. We are a group of students and members of the university from many different backgrounds who share an interest in all topics related to astronomy. We hold many different events including talks from eminent astronomers, observation demonstrations, socials and much more.
Please explore the website to find out more of the exciting astronomy activities possible in Cambridge - especially the unlimited access CUAS members can get to the historic telescopes (Observing). We are always keen to share our passion in astronomy with others, no matter your background in astronomy. Please come along to some of our open events or talk to the friendly committee if you are considering joining.
70th Anniversary Annual Dinner - 16th Feb
This year is the 70th Anniversary of the founding of the Society, a great occasion, and the annual dinner will be fantastic opportunity for alumni from across the history of the society as well as current student members to meet and have a good time celebrating CUAS. It promises to be a lovely event, we have the brilliant Donald Lynden-Bell CBE FRS as after dinner speaker and I hope to get some of the Society archives, including some of Eddington's papers, out of the UL and bring them along to have a look at, as well as a selection of photos from across the years.
If you would like to come, please contact Peter Hatfield before the end of the 7th Feb at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a place.
