Welcome to the official homepage of the
Astronomical Society of Western Australia (Inc.)

ASWA's banner at Whiteman Park

Check out the Perth Observatory night sky camera. It takes a series of short exposures about every 10 minutes and posts these wide field images of the night sky to the web.

ASWA holds its Lunar Section nights at Whiteman Park. The Park is a great place to visit for all sorts of activities. See the Whiteman Park website for more details.

ASWA has held a number of very successful Viewing Nights at Camp Leschenaultia, and would like to recommend the camp site and its many facilities. Click the Logo to visit their website.
