LVAS Calendar

Our normal ongoing program includes monthly meetings every second Tuesday of the month (February to November) at 7:30 pm either at the Wirilda Education Centre or via "zoom", various public oberving nights, and member's observing nights around new moon. We usually conclude the year with a "Starbecue" on the first weekend of December
