H.B.A.A.S – Herne Bay Amateur Astronomical Society

H.B.A.A.S has been running as an amateur astronomical society for over a decade.

We currently run monthly meetings at our venue in Herne Bay. There is ample parking and plenty of room for around 60+ people to be seated and an area large enough for a speaker to talk from inside.

When we carry out observation sessions, they are held at our dark site at the Herne and Broomfield Country Park off of Ford Road.


Our astronomical equipment has grown so that we now have six telescopes for use. Members without a telescope are welcome to use them during an observing session.

Stargazing Live is something we get involved with. If there are any budding astronomers, or if you may be just interested in looking through a telescope to see what all the fuss is about, then get in touch and we will do our best to help.
