The Central West Astronomical Society’s (CWAS) AstroFest is being held in conjunction with the CSIRO Parkes Observatory’s Apollo 11 50th anniversary Open Days, over the weekend of 20-21 July 2019. Lots of exciting events and activities are planned, which will make this anniversary an unforgettable experience.

The Central West of NSW boasts some of the darkest skies in Australia, and as such it is a wonderful place to appreciate the wonders of the night sky.  AstroFest endeavours to bring to the people of the Central West world renowned astronomers, both professional and amateur, so they may share their enthusiasm and love of the heavens.
