About Us About Us
Who We Are
The Kern Astronomical Society (KAS) was founded in 1956 with a charter to “foster interest in astronomy among members, amateur astronomers, and the general public”. We are a club of amateur astronomers that include individuals and families. Anyone interested in astronomy is welcome. The Kern Astronomical Society (KAS) would like to invite you to discover the “Wonders of the Universe.”

Why We Are Here
KAS intends to “bring the joys of astronomy” to the general public. We attend schools, scout groups, and a variety of other community events with telescopes and a lot of enthusiasm. We enjoy showing people everything from the rings of Saturn, to Jupiter’s moons, to the craters of the Moon, and more. See the star party coordinator below for more information.
