Astronomy Department and NRAO Joint Colloquia are held in the auditorium of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory on Edgemont Road. Usually colloquia are held on Thursdays at 4:00 PM. Coffee and cookies are served 15-20 min before the talks.

The schedules for the Tuesday UVa-NRAO Astronomy (TUNA) talks and the NRAO colloquia can be found on the NRAO web site. Both series of talks are also on the UVa Public Events Calendar, with the astronomy tagged events from the UVa calendar listed below.

Occasional colloquia and seminars of interest to astronomers that are sponsored by other departments are also listed here, as are other astronomy-related events in the Charlottesville area. Other goings-on around the Astronomy Department can be found on the main page.

If you know of any astronomy-related events in the area, please let us know so that we may add them to this list.
