Brisbane Astronomical Society
Due to the COVID 19 situation Brisbane Astronomical Society has cancelled all events and meetings. No school nights, public nights, member meeting nights or dark-sky nights will be conducted until the situation is resolved. Thank you for your understanding.
Brisbane Astronomical Society is a friendly group of motivated amateur astronomers covering a broad range of interests. We welcome beginners taking their first steps to exploring the skies, and seasoned amateurs alike. Our members enjoy and share observing and astrophotography, organising public viewing events and school nights. Some even take part in international research projects, discover supernovas or variable stars.
Come and meet us at one of our monthly meetings, or even better, come along to a Public Viewing Night or a Dark-Sky Night. You can expect a friendly atmosphere, good company, likeminded discussions, and practical advice for novice and experienced observers.
