The Tallangatta & District Astronomy Club Inc (TADAC) get together once a month at the Tallangatta Showgrounds and various other locations for night sky observing.

We usually view on a Friday evening, straight after dark and recommend that you get there before dark so that your car headlights don’t blind people using telescopes.

Dates and times are posted to our Website, Facebook Page and Emailed to members. We try to do most of our viewing in Moon-free skies so that faint objects such as Galaxies and Nebulae aren’t washed out by moonlight.


However the Moon itself can be a wonderful telescopic target!

Hence the dates and times of our meetings will change throughout the year. Meetings are weather-dependent of course and in the event of cloudy or rainy weather, the meeting is automatically cancelled and rescheduled.

This usually involves postponement of the observing meeting till the following Friday, but check our Website, Facebook Page or your Email in case there are other arrangements.

Welcome to the 2021 stargazing calender for the year. These dates are all weather dependant but will all go ahead unless the session is cancelled. We hope to see you all under the stars. All meetings at Tallangatta showgrounds. Please visit our Facebook page for cancellations and changes due to weather events at TADAC
