What we're about

Hi and welcome to the Northern Valleys Astronomy Group.

We are mostly members of the "Astronomical Society of Tasmania".

You can find information about us and apply for full membership at (

Membership starts $40 per year and includes free entry to the Launceston Planetarium and immediate family/household can be included if you apply for a family membership.

When you do the A.S.T's membership secretary will notify us and we will add "A.S.T. Member" to your Meetup Member Descriptor.

For public liability reasons A.S.T. membership is necessary for events marked for A.S.T. Members.

General public events like "Tastrofest" and others that we publicize are open to all but you need to register separately, usually online, to attend.

Where marked meetups at private residences are open to non A.S.T. Northern Valleys Astronomy Meetup Group members where the owner extends an invitation.

Please feel free to ask any questions about getting started with astronomy as hobby or about the science of astronomy in general.

Hope to see you soon

Michael Booth
