The ASNSW holds meetings in most months, on Friday evenings nearest Full Moon. The meetings will have a guest speaker who is a professional astronomer or other qualified specialist, discussing leading-edge developments in astronomy or members may offer presentations of a varied nature (general interest or recent activities). Each year, the Annual General Meeting is held in August. The Astroimaging Section meets separately, with meeting information on the Astroimaging & Committee Meetings page. Meetings are held at the Epping Creative Centre - details here

In order to help new members and visitors feel more welcome at our Ordinary Meetings (the Friday night ones), the START time for the meetings is being moved to the earlier time of 7.30pm to allow some dedicated time for a meet-and-greet at the beginning, as well as more social time after the guest speaker.
Further details may be found here: http://www.asnsw.com/node/1562.

Notes to guest speakers: Our meeting hall is equipped with a data projector (VGA and HDMI connections available), loudspeakers and projection screen. In line with our Anti-Discrimination and Harassment Policy, we have to stipulate that your presentation should not include any content that may cause offence to anyone in the audience. Details of the policy are available on our website here: http://www.asnsw.com/node/963#policies
