Cape Centre

Formal meetings with guest speakers – mostly professional astronomers and academics in related fields – on astronomy-related topics are held monthly on the second Wednesday (except in December and January). 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. For more info on our day to day activities please visit our Facebook page.
