Our Profile

The UP Astronomical Society or UP AstroSoc is a scientific, educational, non-profit, non-political, non-partisan organization dedicated in the promotion of astronomy. According to its constitution, UP Astrosoc has the following objectives: (1) to bring together individuals interested in astronomy, (2) to broaden the awareness interest, knowledge and understanding among students and the general public, (3) to contribute to the general body of knowledge of astronomy, (4) and to promote the common interest and individual development of its members. It was founded on July 30, 1991 by a handful of students with the ideals of igniting the interest of Astronomy among the UP student body and the general public. Today, after years of gazing up to the heavens, UP AstroSoc continues its foremost vision of bringing the wonders of the celestial world within people’s reach. It resides in the old planetarium of the PAGASA Astronomical Observatory in the UP Diliman campus.

UP AstroSoc is comprised of members with diverse backgrounds from different colleges in the university. Aside from the usual social activities of a collegiate organization, UP AstroSoc partakes in several Astronomy-inclined activities throughout the academic year. Among these are Astronomy classes, observation assemblies, and public Astronomy lectures and forums. The organization also conducts Astronomy learning sessions and camps to requesting parties outside the UP community, furthering its cause of spreading Astronomy.
