The Anglo-Australian Observatory

For first time visitors, this page gives an overview of what you will find on our site. Our site is for professional astronomers, amateur astronomers and those with an interest in astronomy. Under each page section is a "Designed for" line to help you navigate our web site.
Our site includes general information on the AAT and I especially recommend viewing David Malin's images.  You might like to take a virtual tour of the AAT and its surrounds (under the "What's New" section).
