Meetings bring together astronomers and others who are interested in science and the cosmos, and provides a forum for discussion of matters relating to astronomy. The Society is named in honour of Sir Arthur Stanley Eddington , the famous astrophysicist, who was born in Kendal.
Whether you’re interested in cosmological theories, or just want to know how to find your way around the night sky, EAS is for you. Visitors and new members are welcome regardless of age, experience, or any equipment they might (or might not) own. We host well-known and popular guest speakers. Our own members also give talks and presentations about subjects related to astronomy. banner3
