It’s hard to believe that 2020 is fast coming to an end. It has been a challenging year with the COVID pandemic. This time last year who would have thought we would all become Zoom experts !        

Our December meeting on Monday 7th December 2020 will be a members only Viewing Night and Celebration limited to 30 Sydney City Skywatcher Members only. This is STRICTLY BOOKINGS ONLY, in order to keep numbers within COVID limits.


On the night we will be selling the 2021 Australasian Night Sky Guide by our very own Dr Nick Lomb, at the discounted price of $14.00, a special rate for Sydney City Skywatcher members. (Another benefit of being an SCS member!). That’s a saving of over $2.00. Payment will be by cash only, as there are no facility for credit card or phone payments.

Welcome to Sydney City Skywatchers

Established in 1895, Sydney City Skywatchers carries forward a proud tradition of providing a forum dedicated to amateur astronomers and astronomy enthusiasts in the city. 


We meet at 6:30pm on the first Monday of the Month, usually at Sydney Observatory. Due to Covid-19 we are meeting with presentations and discussion about astronomy using Zoom technology until further notice. Typically there are short astronomy reports from members, and then a guest speaker or telescope viewing opportunity. You don't need to have any specialist knowledge, or own a telescope to enjoy, participate in and learn from these sessions but a passion for astronomy is a must! 


Since 1895 our aims to service the amateurs in astronomy have not changed.

Should you wish to visit Sydney Observatory please contact the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences.
