The CWAS AstroFest is cancelled
It is with great reluctance that the committee of the Central West Astronomical Society has cancelled this year's CWAS AstroFest. The extended lockdown in Greater Sydney, and the closure of the State borders, has forced our hand. Combined with the restricted numbers permitted in the CSIRO's Parkes Observatory Visitors Centre, the continuation of the AstroFest became untenable.
Consequently, the announcement of the CWAS "David
Malin Awards" will no longer be held in person, but will be
livestreamed on Saturday, 24 July, from 3:00 PM (AEST). Details of the
livestream will be posted on our social media pages, next
week. The official opening of the permanent exhibition at the Parkes
Observatory, will be held at a future date when the situation improves.
The CWAS wishes to thank CSIRO Space & Astronomy, Celestron Australia, SunStudios, and Astrovisuals, for their continued support in these trying times.
