In addition to monthly meetings often including invited guest speakers, the Society invites members to regular get-togethers – including observing sessions – at various ASV sites in metropolitan Melbourne and at the ASV dark sky near Heathcote in central Victoria. Some meetings are also available online and there are social media groups covering specific and more general astronomical interests.
There are also social events such as a ‘Star-Be-Cue’ and other activities where members of all skill levels and experience meet to discuss all things astronomical.
