Association for Astronomy - Macquarie University

The Association for Astronomy (AfA) was established in 1988 by Dr. Alan Vaughan to promote knowledge of astronomy to the community and to encourage teaching and research in astronomy and astrophysics at Macquarie University. We sponsor activities though our observatory and planetarium, and host an Astronomy Open Night each year as well as other special events. We can be contacted at

The AfA takes the health and safety of its guests seriously. Please note that our weekly public observing sessions are currently suspended until further notice. We will continue to heed the advice of Macquarie University leadership, NSW Health and the Australian government, and will provide you with updates about our sessions on our Facebook page. In the mean time, please stay safe, practice social distancing, and wash your hands!
