Our Vision


A world in which all humankind is inspired and united by the pursuit of knowledge of the infinite variety and richness of the Universe.


To protect specific dark-sky places around the country and maintain their starry nights and dark nocturnal environment, not only for the benefit of regular people, but also for scientists and educators.


Cyprus-based astronomers will have access to the best astronomical research infrastructure. CAO will achieve this vision by engaging with astronomers in support of the national research infrastructure priorities of the Troodos Observatory, and advising the Cyprus Government on the investments necessary to realise those priorities.

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!
