In April 2018, the second Data Release of the ESA Gaia mission is expected and will once again broaden our astrometrical horizon. The week before, the team of the stellar...
11am–12pm 30 October 2017
The orbital parameters of binary stars at intermediate periods (100-1000 d) are difficult to measure with conventional methods and are very incomplete. For the past couple of...
11am–12pm 26 October 2017
Our current understanding of galaxy formation is based on the presence of an elusive matter component: the Cold Dark Matter (CDM). Such a component is extremely successful...
2.30–3.30pm 11 October 2017
Our knowledge of planets other than the eight "classical" Solar System bodies is in its infancy. We are discovering thousands of planets orbiting stars other than our own, and...

11am–12pm 21 September 2017
Strongly gravitationally lensed galaxies are veritable gems for our understanding of high-redshift galaxy evolution, allowing us (at least in the few most fortuitous cases) to...

7–9pm 15 September 2017
Mount Stromlo Observatory in conjunction with the Canberra Astronomical Society invite the Canberra community to attend our public observing nights of 2017. Come and see the rings...

Hubble has revolutionized the discovery and study of very distant galaxies through its deep imaging surveys. Together the HST WFC3/IR and ACS cameras have opened up the...
11am–12pm 3 August 2017
Our view of exoplanets is one derived primarily from Solar-like stars with a strong focus on understanding our Solar System. Our knowledge about the properties of exoplanets...
