Our Mission

The purpose of the Cyprus Astronomy Organisation (CAO) shall be to provide a community to support education and outreach to the island of Cyprus, observing and research opportunities for the public and resources for all those interested in astronomy and allied sciences.

We share our time and telescopes to provide you with unique astronomy experiences!

Founded by a small group of like-minded astronomy enthusiasts and has since grown to a sizeable community

Our community consists mainly of amateur astronomers from widely diverse backgrounds with a unifying interest in observing and discovering more about our universe. We aim to give opportunities to all members of the community to hear and learn more about astronomy, and grow an understanding of, and inspire curiosity about, our Universe through public outreach programs, education, and support for astronomical research.

We assist people with all levels of knowledge in astronomy - from novices who want to learn which binoculars or telescope is right for them, through someone who already owns a telescope and wants to maximise their visual experience.
