About Astronomy Benalla   Astronomy Benalla (Inc.) was formed in 2010 to promote the interest and enjoyment of amateur astronomy. Through our activities and services, we seek to foster safe and enjoyable learning experiences while encouraging the interest and involvement of the wider community of Benalla and district. We have a strong tradition of community engagement providing regular viewing sessions for the general public and local community groups. A diverse group with a passion for experiencing the wonders of the universe beyond our home planet, our membership interests include focusing on the best view our telescopes can provide, the best images our telescopes can record, and building our knowledge of Astronomy. Meetings are held at 7:30pm on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at the Hockey Club Rooms, Churchill Memorial Reserve. They consist of a short business meeting followed by Guest or Member presentations. Each month a Moon viewing session is attempted* at the Showgrounds, and a Deep Sky viewing session is attempted* at our dark sky site at the Observation Pad, Winton Wetlands. A summary of the coming meeting and viewing sessions over the next month is provided in the panel on the left of this page. More detailed calendar, information, directions and the status of our activities is provided on our Events Page (see the menu bar above). Please refer to it for the status of *events that may be effected by viewing conditions.
