    Welcome to the Department of Astronomy!

    The Department of Astronomy at Stockholm University, Stockholm Observatory, is the main institution in Stockholm for research and education within astronomy and astrophysics. We are located in AlbaNova University Center close to the main Stockholm University and Royal Institute of Technology campuses.

    Information about teaching Autumn 2020 and Spring 2021

    From 24 November 2020, the limit for the number of people at public gatherings will be lowered to 8. The Government has also made it clear that this limit should be seen as a guideline for other events. The department's assessment is therefore that as much teaching as possible should be moved online.

    Research at the Department of Astronomy

    Research in astronomy and astrophysics at the department is both observational and theoretical, and ranges from nearby objects like the Sun to the most distant galaxies. There is also a strong interest in astronomical instrumentation.
