Welcome to the ASV Comet & Meteor Section
The Comet & Meteor Section of the Astronomical Society of Victoria was formed to meet the needs of ASV members, who want quick, and reliable information, on all things related to comets & Meteors.
Goals & Objectives
The section unites members who want to learn about comets & meteors, and communicates up-to-date information on how to observe, and record comets & meteors. Members are encouraged to share their experiences, and occasionally get together, to observe and discuss topics related to comets & meteors. The section also contributes to "Crux" and other International organizations, where our information can make a difference, and is sought after. With the Linear and Neat projects targeting the Northern skies, there are still opportunities for our members to discover a comet.
The section organises occasional meetings, and observing sessions for its members. Comet/Meteor shower bulletins are sent to members regularly from the director, containing information on new comets, outbursts, and any new developments. Members are encouraged to submit their reports, or any matters, they want to discuss.
