Welcome to the Royal Astronomical Society of New Zealand website.

The RASNZ website provides astronomical information with a New Zealand and Southern Hemisphere focus for members of the RASNZ and for people interested in astronomy and astronomical events generally.

Registered RASNZ members have access to the online version of the Southern Stars (RASNZ journal) and other member specific information.

Hey! How did I get here?

Some of the pages from our old site (from before 2014) haven't made it across to this site. Please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and let us know which page you were looking for so we can provide it for you.

Please Register

Please take the time to create an account, especially if you are a RASNZ member.  For RASNZ members this opens up a members only section of the website where you can download the latest Southern Stars journal. We also provide various RASNZ documents for member's use. If you think there is something missing that we should provide to members please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and let us know!

If you are not a RASNZ member now would be a good time to sign up for membership. You can do this using the online membership application form found under the RASNZ heading.

If you belong to a society affiliated with RASNZ note it during registration and we will keep you informed of upcoming events by email as information comes to hand.

We are here to help

Please do tell us (by emailing the This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) about any issues or missing material you notice. We would also love to hear about ideas for content you may have.

Take some time to have a look around, and come back again soon as we develop and grow the site.

Clear Skies,
Peter J. & Simon L.
