Welcome to Southern Astronomical Society

The SAS was formed in 1986 to promote Amateur Astronomy. The Society actively encourages Observational Astronomy, Astrophotography, Telescope and Observatory Construction.

The SAS foster a friendly and supportive community. Our mission is to educate and support local astronomers by holding educational seminars, upskilling, and sharing the cosmos with the wider community through outreach.
