Crete Astronomy Friends Club

About Us

Away from the light pollution of the major European cities in combination with its geographical position, being the most Southern location of the European Union, Crete has been chosen by famous institutions and universities for research, observation and astro-imaging. This is why Crete hosts not only one of the best Greek Astrophysics departments but also the second biggest Greek observatory with tens of discoveries and almost all year round joint projects with European and international observatories.

C.A.F.C. is the 16th Greek Amateur Astronomy Club based in Chania but with members all over the island. Its main purpose is to bring together people who are interested in Astronomy whatever their knowledge or exprertize. We are also dedicated in bringing Astronomy to the public, informing, inspiring, teaching and learning.
