We are a society based in the northern suburbs of Sydney (NSW, Australia), containing a number of streams to cater for astronomy-related interests at all levels. We have a number of core streams and activities at NSAS and these are listed below. Please visit the site regularly to get updated news on our upcoming events and activities.

NEW BEGINNERS CURRICULUM – BEGINNERS NIGHT ON ZOOM (BNZ) and BEGINNERS NIGHT IN THE FIELD (BNF). We are pleased to announce a new curriculum to support beginners who wish to get involved with the practical aspects of astronomy ie: telescopes etc. It consists of an initial zoom session to cover the basics of setting up a telescope and then a field session to put that into practice. The field session is limited to 10 telescopes so that each person gets the support they need from the NSAS instructor. For more information, or to reserve your booking please refer here

GENERAL MEETINGS Our General Meetings are held each month (except Dec/Jan) and are usually conducted at Regis Hall, as well as via Zoom. The meeting is open to everybody, i.e. NSAS members and non-members alike. The meetings are on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at 7:30pm (AEDST).

Please note that due to COVID-19, meetings will be via zoom only but will restart at Regis Hall in February.  

NOTE: Club observing nights at the moment are reserved for members and attendees of the Beginners Night in the Field (which requires a registration) only.

We will advise here when these activities resume. All our General Meetings / Guest Speaker Talks for the foreseeable future will be conducted on zoom.

The Beginners Night are also Zoom sessions.

Our next speaker night is 7:30pm on 16th November and we are pleased to announce that Andy Wang, who is the first author on the recent paper regarding a mysterious radio source in the Milky Way Galactic centre, will be presenting.
