One of the main objectives of the ASNSW is to bring together, people who are interested in Astronomy and related sciences, and to promote public interest and education in Astronomy. We provide Astronomical observing facilities for members, educational lectures for members and the public, and we assist members and the public to select, use and even construct telescopes and related instruments.
In keeping with this objective, a group of ASNSW members regularly volunteer to stage observing nights for students at schools around Sydney, using their portable telescopes. These nights are extremely popular, and are very strongly in keeping with our charter to promote public interest and education in Astronomy.
These school nights generally consist of an informative talk on whatever aspect of Astronomy is currenlty being studied by the students, followed by observing through a range of members' telescopes (weather permitting).
If you are interested in having the ASNSW host an observing night at your school, please Email Us and we'll organise a suitable date and time for your school.
Alternatively, if you are willing to volunteer a few hours of your time and a telescope for any of the above school nights, please Email Us - any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
