The DIURNALS is a friendly group which meets during the daytime on the third Tuesday of the month February - December.
To provide an opportunity for meetings during the DAYTIME.
To disseminate knowledge on various facets of astronomy and related fields, together with Space Exploration, in an informal environment.
To foster enjoyment of the subject matter with kindred spirits, and to encourage newer members who may show an interest in a particular area.
There are no pre-requisites and you don't have to be a mathematics or physics genius! Just come with a desire to learn. Most months, we have a guest speaker, and talks given cover a wide range of astronomical fields and space exploration. Occasionally, a film is shown followed by discussion if desired. Two or three times a year, we will have an excursion to another facility, e.g., Swinburne University, Melbourne Planetarium or a Science facility.
