Whyalla Regional Branch
Welcome to our website and our group, The Whyalla Branch is a small but growing group of astronomers with interests ranging from planetary viewing, deep space observing and various levels of astrophotography. We welcome vistitors to both our meetings and viewing nights and have telescopes for people to use at these sessions.
For more information please contact, Peter Mayfield 0405 410 895
Viewing nights are generally open to the public at our prime site located at the site near the Point Lowly turn off on the Pt Augusta road just north of Whyalla ( in the old industrial area). For the foreseable future we will hold these viewing nights on an ad hoc basis and will post dates and time here. Viewing on meeting nights will be held in the Park alongside our meeting room.
The Whyalla Branch meets on the first Thursday of the month at the Whyalla Public Library at 7pm.
Our group maintains a page on Facebook in which we post events, hold discussions and post our photographs, please feel free to "like" us and join in with us.
