“If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders
of giants.” — Isaac Newton, 1676
Who we are
We are an association dedicated to extending the frontiers of Astronomical knowledge in our university and in Sri lanka as a whole. The reinstating of the association was done only recently. But through the collective effort of our members, we will be able to grow with a wide breadth.
What we do
We will maintain direct contact with the academic community and astronomy associations throughout the country and all over the world so that the University of Moratuwa will become the pioneer institute for astronomical knowledge and research in Sri lanka. Also we provide opportunities for our less experienced members to grow in one of the greatest hobbies in this world or any other!
Why we do it
Astronomy is also one of the few sciences where we amateurs can substantially contribute to the wealth of human knowledge. We strive to create an environment where those who wish to contribute will be supported and encouraged in their efforts. Whether you are just fascinated by the endless sky that lies above you or with a background in the field, you will find our club to be an invaluable asset.
You can find out more about the club and the events we have planned by browsing through the site. Also feel free to join the Yahoo group of our club at , http://www.groups.yahoo.com/astro_uom so that we can contact you with meeting dates and times.
