CAS caters to the needs of amateur astronomers in and around Canberra and the ACT, Australia. If you’re interested in astronomy, you’ve come to the right place—why not consider becoming a member?

CAS undertakes a significant amount of astronomy outreach in our local community. We work closely with the Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics (RSAA) at the Mt. Stromlo Observatory to conduct public stargazing nights, as well as working with schools in the region to show their students the wonders of the night sky.
