Macarthur Astronomical Society
We are amateur astronomy enthusiasts from right across the South Western Region of Sydney, Australia, including Campbelltown, Camden, Liverpool and Wollondilly local government areas.
The Society brings local and international guest speakers to address our monthly Macarthur Astronomy Forum at the Campbelltown Campus of Western Sydney University.
We organise public astronomy nights in collaboration with Campbelltown Rotary Observatory at Western Sydney University and we collaborate with local institutions to maximise knowledge of the Universe in the local community.
We hold regular dark sky observing sessions for our members to advance their skills.
Thank you for your support. We currently have 132 full members of the Society, 830+ Facebook followers and 130+ Twitter followers!
