Join respected Noongar Elder Dr Noel Nannup OAM as he shares some of the stories about the night sky from an Aboriginal perspective. Together with the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR), Dr Nannup will illustrate the stories using a Stellarium app that features the night sky.

Dr Noel Nannup is a noted storyteller, cultural guide, instructor and mentor. His career has been dedicated to educating young Western Australians about the rich cultural heritage of Aboriginal people and their lands; and, throughout that process, he has played an active and leading role in reconciliation.
