The Eddington Astronomical Society meets in Kendal, Cumbria in the Kendal Museum.
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.
