General Meeting: Speaker: TBA
On the 3rd Tuesday of the month (February to November) at 7:30pm, we meet on zoom or at Regis Hall in the grounds of St Ignatius’ College, Riverview Street, Riverview (Lane Cove) which features a presentation from a Guest Lecturer. These presentations generally focus on the theoretical aspects of Cosmology, Astrophysics and Astrophotography and can include some of the most up-to-date research and scientific findings. We are fortunate to be able to obtain speakers from Australia’s top universities and scientific community – our past Guest Lecturers have included the likes of Dr Fred Watson and Nobel Prize winner Prof. Brian Schmidt.
The format of the evening consists of a welcome to Members and Visitors, a quick discussion on general business of NSAS, the presentation from our Guest Speaker and then members usually stay and have a chat with a cup of tea or coffee.
These meetings are an excellent opportunity to get to know fellow members.
