The Jackson-Gwilt Medal of the Royal Astronomical Society has been awarded regularly since 1897 for the invention, improvement, or development of astronomical instrumentation or techniques; for achievement in observational astronomy; or for achievement in research into the history of astronomy. After the Gold Medal it is the oldest award offered by the Society. [1]

The medal is named after Hannah Jackson née Gwilt, a daughter of the architect and former fellow, Joseph Gwilt.
