'Formed in 1976 by a small group of keen amateur astronomers. Today, the society has a very active membership of between 50 and 100 members from across North and Mid-Kent and some from East Kent. The Mission of MKAS is Making Astronomy accessible to all. Its aims are to promote interest in and enhance the study of astronomy in Kent, and to provide facilities for the study of astronomy for its members. Additionally, MKAS promotes the education of astronomy to the public and its members. This is done through a wide variety of talks, events, projects, and outreach activities. Talks are usually made very simple for everyone to understand, and are highly enjoyable.'
