11am–12pm 12 November 2015
Sub-millimeter galaxies (SMGs) are the most dusty galaxies in the high-redshift Universe, with large infrared luminosities powered by intense star formation activity. Although...
11am–12pm 10 November 2015
Data from the VVV NIR survey of the inner Milky Way show that our Galaxy has a strongly peanut-shaped bulge. Extending the analysis to larger radii with other surveys shows that...
11am–12pm 29 October 2015
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people developed complex knowledge systems around the sun, moon, and stars. Stellar positions and properties (such as declination, colour,...
11am–12pm 27 October 2015
The spectra of AGN host galaxies contain emission lines excited by radiation from both massive stars and the AGN accretion disk. Standard calibrations for the star formation rate...
10–11.30am 24 October 2015
Take a walking tour of the Mount Stromlo Observatory and learn about one of Canberra’s oldest sites. Mount Stromlo Observatory has been carrying out astronomical...
11am–12pm 22 October 2015
Thanks to numerous ground and space-based surveys, we are now aware of over 1800 planets orbiting other stars, with another nearly 5000 candidates from the Kepler Mission awaiting...
11am–12pm 20 October 2015
I will present some new results pertaining to our current understanding of the structure and substructure of the stellar components of the Milky Way, including possible relations...
11.30am–12pm 13 October 2015
As a part of Mahalo-Subaru project, we performed a deep narrow-band imaging with Subaru/MOIRCS in the SXDF-CANDELS field. We construct samples of [OIII] emission line galaxies at...
11–11.30am 13 October 2015
I will review the outcomes from our recent researches of mapping star forming activities during the peak epoch of galaxy formation and across various environments through our...
11am–12pm 8 October 2015
The first stars, known as Population III, produced the first heavy elements, thereby enriching their surrounding pristine gas. However, all previous detections of metals in...
11am–12pm 1 October 2015
I review recent developments in the study of interstellar extinction, specifically findings on the wavelength-dependence of the extinction curve both within the Milky Way and...
7–9pm 25 September 2015
Mount Stromlo Observatory in conjunction with the Canberra Astronomical Society invite the Canberra community to attend our public observing nights of 2015. Come and see the rings...
4–5pm 17 September 2015
In the space of a generation, cosmology has been transformed from an almost entirely theoretical activity into a rigorous, empirical science; I will describe the resulting '...

2pm 17 September 2015
Where do meteorites come from and what are they? Dr Emma Kirby has the answers!
11am–12pm 17 September 2015
Planet formation is a subject being revolutionised by the stunning first long-baseline images from the ALMA telescope in Chile. The first of these, of the HL Tau protoplanetary...
11am–12pm 11 September 2015
Diffuse interstellar bands (DIBs) and atomic lines are observed as interstellar absorptions in GALAH and other massive spectroscopic stellar surveys. By observing a given DIB...
10–11am 2 September 2015
Women comprise more than half of science PhD graduates and early career researchers, but less than 20% of senior academics in Australian universities and research institutes. The...
11am–12pm 25 August 2015
The Siding Spring Southern Seyfert Spectroscopic Snapshot Survey (S7) is providing integral field spectroscopy on ~140 nearby active galaxies in the wavelength region 3300-7000...
10–11.30am 22 August 2015
Take a walking tour of the Mount Stromlo Observatory and learn about one of Canberra’s oldest sites. Mount Stromlo Observatory has been carrying out astronomical...
6–9pm 21 August 2015
What record are you trying to break? On Friday 21 August 2015 Mt. Stromlo Observatory will be leading Australia in attempting to break two Guinness World Records - Most...
