Macarthur Astronomical Society

Established in 1996

Macarthur Astronomical Society is based in South West Sydney, Australia. It organises the Macarthur Astronomy Forum, held at Western Sydney University, Campbelltown, with guest speakers from the world of astronomy who have included professional astronomers from Australia and overseas; most notably a Nobel Prize Winner and a NASA astronaut.

MAS also organises regular public observing nights, often in collaboration with Campbelltown Rotary Observatory.
