About The Society


The Hamilton Astronomical Society was formed in 1933 and is one of the oldest of New Zealand's 25 amateur astronomical societies. Our core objective is to provide the people of the Waikato with an opportunity to learn about astronomy and to share their enthusiasm with like minded people.
