Welcome to the University of Wollongong Astronomical Society!


The purpose of the UOWAS is to encourage and foster interest in astronomy. One of the ways we do this is by hosting observation ‘Star Party’ nights on the first Friday of each month! Make sure to join the group on Facebook and like the page to keep up to date on all the UOWAS events!

We also host lectures by professional and amateur astronomers, teach how to operate telescopes, take astronomical photography, and much more. Stay tuned for future events, and join the society to recieve email updates on upcoming events.
