On Saturday 8 February, you are invited to visit Stockport Observatory to see the giant planet Jupiter and the Moon through telescopes (weather permitting). A slide show, sausage sizzle and refreshments will be available throughout the evening.
Stockport Observatory is located in the small town of Stockport (6kms north-east of Hamley Bridge) approximately 80kms north of Adelaide. It provides a convenient astronomical facility away from the light pollution which surrounds Adelaide (population 1 million).
Visit https://www.assa.org.au/stockport for more information and driving directions.
Note that if the weather looks doubtful, the event may be cancelled or we may run an alternative programme (e.g. observatory tour). Please check our web site after 6pm before travelling.
If the event is cancelled, your payment will be refunded in full.
The Astronomical Society of South Australia was founded in 1892 and is the oldest society of its kind in Australia. It is the only representative body for amateur astronomy in the state of South Australia.
The objectives of the Society are to promote the Science of Astronomy and all its branches. It does this by holding regular meetings and viewing nights, circulating current astronomical information, and encouraging popular interest in Astronomy.
The Society occupies a number of permanent observatories in South Australia that house some of the largest telescopes in the state, and can bring smaller telescopes to schools and groups venues.
