Astronomical Society of Northern New England

About Us

Located in Kennebunk, Maine, the Astronomical Society of Northern New England (ASNNE) is an all-volunteer non-profit educational organization founded in 1982 to promote public awareness of astronomy. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced amateur astronomer, enjoyment and challenges await you as a member of ASNNE. Our activities include teaching the basics of recognizing the constellations, observing the stars and planets with telescopes of all sizes, presenting monthly discussions on a wide variety of astronomy related topics, and organizing outings to special events.

Starfield Observatory in Kennebunk, with its 16' x 32' roll-off roof design, now houses two large telescopes. One is an 8" f/15 Zeiss-Jena refractor and the other is a 16" Meade LX200 GPS Schmidt-Cassegrain.

ASNNE encourages schools, scout troops and other community groups to contact us for presentations, observing sessions and slide shows. We design all programs to fit the particular group.

In addition, ASNNE holds monthly business meetings with strong educational components. The meetings are open to the public.
