Maleny Observatory – it’s official!

THE Astronomical Society of Australia, the peak professional astronomy organisation, has recognised the educational and community contribution and facilities operating from the Maleny Golf Club.
It has now declared the Brisbane Astronomical Society operations a designated observatory and it can now be referred to as the Maleny Observatory.

The Standards Association of Australia and New Zealand recognises the need for restrictions on outdoor lighting in the vicinity of designated observatories, so this will assist in keeping the precinct dark.
