The Astronomical Society of Western Australia (Inc.)
ASWA is the premier Astronomical society in the state of Western Australia. We are located in Perth, the world’s most isolated capital city (at roughly 32ºS 116ºE), but are open to Membership from all over the state, the country, the world, or even the Universe. If you check a satellite snap of the Earth at night, you’ll see us as that lonely dot on the west coast of the vast, dark expanse that is Australia.
