On the fourth week of the month, talks are presented by members. A quiz on astronomy-related topics is held every second month and ad hoc evenings feature practical demonstrations, short courses and documentary films. Visitors are welcome to attend meetings, which start at 20:00 and are held in the SAAO Auditorium, Observatory Road, Observatory, Cape Town. Activities also include dark sky outings, field trips and public outreach.
