About Us

We are the Astronomical Society of the University of Colombo. Let’s explore more about our contribution towards astronomy and space exploration. We have been organizing many activities related to astronomy, astrophysics, and space sciences at various locations across the country.

Inter-school astronomy quiz competitions and workshops, occasional observation camps, and regular series of lectures are some of the astronomy activities we offer to university undergraduates and school students. Our projects and contributions aim to raise students’ and other astronomy enthusiasts’ awareness of the current state and progress of astronomy in Sri Lanka.

Let’s explore the wonders of the universe and beyond. So come along with us on our astronomy journey for even more unforgettable moments and experiences.
