Welcome to Amateur Astronomy!

Humans have long gazed toward the heavens, searching to put meaning and order to the universe around them. Although the movement of constellations — patterns imprinted on the night sky — were the easiest to track, other celestial events such as eclipses and the motion of planets were also charted and predicted.

ABOUT:

 

The Tallangatta & District Astronomy Club Inc (TADAC) get together once a month at the Tallangatta Showgrounds and various other locations for night sky observing.

We usually view on a Friday evening, straight after dark and recommend that you get there before dark so that your car headlights don’t blind people using telescopes.

Dates and times are posted to our Website, Facebook Page and Emailed to members. We try to do most of our viewing in Moon-free skies so that faint objects such as Galaxies and Nebulae aren’t washed out by moonlight.

 

However the Moon itself can be a wonderful telescopic target!

Hence the dates and times of our meetings will change throughout the year. Meetings are weather-dependent of course and in the event of cloudy or rainy weather, the meeting is automatically cancelled and rescheduled.

This usually involves postponement of the observing meeting till the following Friday, but check our Website, Facebook Page or your Email in case there are other arrangements.
