6–9pm 15 August 2015
Mount Stromlo Observatory in conjunction with the Canberra Astronomical Society and Les Explorateurs Scout Group invite the wider ACT Scouts community to attend our special...
11am–12pm 13 August 2015
One of the most important questions in astronomy today is the source of the ionising photons that caused a predominantly neutral Early Universe to evolve into the ionised one we...
11am–12pm 30 July 2015
Ladies and Gentlemen, I would like to bring to your attention a momentous occasion. The first SkyMapper Ph.D. is (almost) complete! I know some feared this day would never come;...
11am–12pm 28 July 2015
The magnetic history of the Universe is uncharted. Measurements of magnetic fields on scales larger than galaxy clusters are needed to distinguish between fields generated in the...
7–9pm 24 July 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...
6–7.30pm 20 July 2015
On the 3rd June the Giant Magellan Telescope Organisation announced that the GMT was beginning construction. Join us for an evening exploring Australia’s involvement in this...
11am–12pm 2 July 2015
With experiments returning a vast amount of data, the ability of humans to explore that data unaided is diminishing. Computers provide a way to query large volumes of data in an...
10–11.30am 27 June 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...
7–9pm 19 June 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...
11am–12pm 18 June 2015
Since the pioneering work of Henry Norris Russell 100 years ago, the study of nearby stellar populations has served as a foundation for our quest to understand the nature of...
11am–12pm 2 June 2015
Galaxies follow tight scaling relations linking their dynamical properties to their baryonic content. The study of these dynamical laws strongly constrains cosmological models of...
11am–12pm 28 May 2015
Transiting systems offer us unique opportunities to study individual systems in great detail. This talk will present discoveries of new transiting planets and low mass stars, and...
7–9pm 22 May 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...
11am–12pm 21 May 2015
Observations of the cosmos provide a valuable tool to study the fundamental laws of nature. The future generation of astronomical surveys will provide data for a sizeable fraction...
11am–12pm 14 May 2015
The Southern African Large Telescope (SALT) was a relatively cheap (~$20M) 10m class telescope, for which the construction phase was completed, relatively quickly, by late 2005....
11am–12pm 12 May 2015
Despite many decades of progress in understanding the evolution of star formation and stellar populations in galaxies, we have still fundamental questions that have remained...
11am–12pm 7 May 2015
We often describe galaxies at z=0 as a bimodal population. On one side we have gas-rich, star-forming spirals; on the other, passively-evolving, gas-poor, early-types. The former...
11am–12pm 28 April 2015
Molecular clouds in the central 200 pc of the Galaxy (the 'Central Molecular Zone') exhibit different (and more extreme) physical properties than those in the disk, yet because...
7–9pm 24 April 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...
