Welcome to the East African Astronomical Society (EAAS) official website

The East African Astronomical Society was established in November 2010 in Nairobi, Kenya, with the mission of promoting both professional astronomy as well as public understanding of astronomy in the region. After the establishment, the society held two general workshops in February 2011 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, and in November 2012 in Mukono, Uganda. The Society at the moment is looking at different ways of fulfilling its mission and it welcomes any collaborations with institutions or societies with similar mission.
