Viewing Nights (at our dark site)

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 tird Wednesday of each month at the Hockey Ground on Searle St, Whyalla Norrie. Meetings commence at 7.30pm. For the forseable future we intend to hold a viewing session in the latter part of the meetings on Wednesday night so please bring along your telescopes etc. 

There are no upcoming events.



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.
