Comets, Occultations, Meteors and Asteroids Group

Several members of the Astronomical Society of South Australia have an interest in observing certain dynamic solar system objects and events. This includes the apparition of comets, meteor showers, asteroids and occultation events when a body such as the Moon, a planet, or an asteroid passes in front of a star.

The Comets, Occultations, Meteors and Asteroids group (COMA) was formed in 2021 and provides a focus for these activities in the ASSA and the exchange of local information for this very dynamic area of Astronomy.

The group plans regular communications, including Zoom meetings, comet and meteor observing sessions, and encourages members to participate in asteroid occultation events.

Members interested in participating in this group should contact Joe Grida.
