Meetings of the Astronomical Society of NSW

The Astronomical Society of New South Wales usually holds one Ordinary Meeting per month, at the Epping Creative Centre, on Friday evenings nearest Full Moon. In 2020 and 2021 some meetings are held electronically by ZOOM (please check individual meeting notices for details) Guest speakers at meetings are often professional astronomers or other qualified specialists, discussing leading edge developments in astronomy. Sometimes speakers are members making presentations of their own observations, telescope making, other related activities, discussing Society business etc. In memory of our founder, the talk at one of the meetings (in October or November) is presented as the "Gordon Patston Memorial Lecture". The astroimaging enthusiasts have one meeting per month, held on Wednesday evenings. The committee also meets monthly.

Upcoming Meeting Schedule

Guest Speakers

The ASNSW engages guest speakers from leading Australian and overseas Astronomical institutions to address our meetings. In these talks you will hear about their latest research on wide range of topics of astronomical interest. We also have talks from ASNSW members speaking on their latest projects or topics of interest to amateur observers.

If you have an interest in Astronomy or are thinking of joining the ASNSW, come along to one of our Ordinary Meetings to listen to our guest speakers. Visitors are welcome. A light supper is normally provided at the end of the meeting. A selection of library books will also be available for borrowing.
