Ordinary Meetings & AGM

The ASNSW holds Ordinary Meetings in most months, on Friday evenings nearest Full Moon. Each Ordinary Meeting 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). We maintain a list of Past Guest Speakers.

  • The Annual General Meeting is normally held in August each year.
  • The talk at the October or November Ordinary Meeting is usually designated "The Gordon Patston Memorial Lecture" in honour of our founder.
  • The Astroimaging Section meets separately, with meeting information on the Astroimaging Meetings page.
