Description

TASTROFEST - Tasmania's Astronomy Festival is back again and this time it is so big we have had to move it to the Stadium! Join us in Ulverstone for a three-day festival of space lectures, science exhibitions, live science shows and workshops. Come along and see your favourite characters from Star Wars and dress up as your favourite Sci Fi cosplay. You will find free movies and lectures and movie memorabilia as well as meet Storm Troopers for photo opportunities!
Workshops include beginners and advanced astrophotography, learning to use telescopes and kid’s rocketry.
Learn the basics or get stuck into the advanced theory with talks covering night sky viewings or how you can get involved with the study of super massive black holes.
There will also be planetarium sessions and NASA displays, Virtual Reality as well as our famous Astrophotography and Aurora gallery (running 1-26 August at the Ulverstone Civic Centre).
Join us for night sky viewings or bring along a blanket for our indoor movie sessions. Something for everyone!
