Event description

Description

Mount Stromlo Observatory in conjunction with the Canberra Astronomical Society invite the Canberra community to attend our public observing nights of 2018. 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. The café will also be open to serve food and drink.


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.


2018 Dates: 20 April, 18 May, 15 June, 13 July, 17 August, and 14 September.

FAQs

My preferred date is sold out. Will more tickets become available for it?

We do not release extra tickets to our public nights, nor do we maintain a waitlist. However, please check back 1-2 days before the event as tickets may become available again as people cancel their orders.
