The Sidereal Times

The Sidereal Times is the official Journal of the Astronomical Society of Western Australia. Published bi-monthly, it contains a range of informative articles (mostly written by members), sky highlights for the coming months, Society reports, classified advertisements, notice of Society events and details of past activities within the Society. Together with our monthly Ordinary meetings, it provides the main form of communicating information to Society members.

It also features up-to-the-minute bulletins on current and future astronomical and space-related events from agencies such as NASA, the Hubble Space Telescope Science Institute, Jet Propulsion Laboratories, the European Space Agency, the European Southern Observatory and the International Astronomical Union, as well as gleanings from publications of astronomical organizations throughout the world.  

Submissions to The Sidereal Times and other ASWA publications may be forwarded to the Editor as text or as Word attachments.
