Description

Come to the Blue Mountains Botanic Garden for an out-of-this-world experience! Join astronomers from Sydney Observatory and the Australian Astronomical Observatory for a night of spectacular sky-viewing from Mount Tomah.

There’ll be lots of interactive fun, including the amazing Gravity Model, a binocular-tour of the night sky and telescope viewing of the moon, planets and stars. Learn all about our galaxy and beyond, and have all your spacey questions answers by our guest astronomers!

Amazing Astronomy: An introduction to some of the newest and most exciting astronomical discoveries by Australian Astronomical Observatory astronomer Dr Angel Lopez-Sanchez.

Gravity Model Demonstrations: A fun demonstration and hands-on activity where the force of gravity is demonstrated before your very eyes by Sydney Observatory staff using an interactive model.

Night Sky Telescope Viewing: See the night sky through portable telescopes facilitated by Sydney Observatory and Australian Astronomical Obseratory staff. Ask the experts your astronomical questions while you view the wonders of our universe!

Binocular Sky Tour: MAAS Astronomer Curator Sarah Reeves will guide you through the wonders of the night sky: see planets with the naked eye, discover the constellations, meet our nearest star, and learn all about our beautiful Milky Way and the Universe beyond.
