Welcome!

The Pretoria branch of the Astronomical Society of South Africa offers amateur and professional astronomers the chance to learn more about the field of astronomy and enjoy the unique southern skies.

The event at the Pretoria zoo has been cancelled for 14 May 2016 and moved to 11 June 2016. There is an unacceptably high risk of bad weather on the 14th of May, including predicted rain, that will make stargazing impossible.
