Mount Stromlo Observatory in conjunction with the Canberra Astronomical Society invite the Canberra community to attend our public observing nights of 2019. Come and see the rings of Saturn, the craters of the moon, and beautiful star clusters and nebulae. On the night attendees will be taken on a ‘tour of the universe’ with talks by astronomers from Mt. Stromlo Observatory and observations on several telescopes.
Bookings are essential and entry is by gold coin donation. Warm clothing is recommended.
In the event of cloudy/bad weather, stargazing will be cancelled (the talks will occur regardless of the weather). You can check out the weather at Mt Stromlo using our all sky camera. We will also post updates on our Facebook page.
Adam Rains is a PhD student at ANU's Research School of Astronomy & Astrophysics, where he works to understand the properties of southern hemisphere stars and how they relate to any exoplanets they might host.
2019 Dates: 12 April, 10 May, 7 June, 12 July, 16 August, 27 September.
