Ask an astronomer

Curious about what astronomers in Australia get up to in the dark of night? Email your questions and we will share it with one of our astronomers!  We attempt to answer as many questions as possible, but because of the volume of e-mail we receive, unfortunately we are often unable to answer all of them. It usually takes 1-2 weeks for our volunteers to respond to a question, but in busy periods it may take longer.

Before contacting one of our expert astronomers, please check our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page or the ASA Resources Page.
