Mount Stromlo Public Astronomy Night
Entry by gold coin donation
Mount Stromlo Observatory, in conjunction with the Canberra Astronomical Society, invites the Canberra community to attend one of our public observing nights of 2019. Come and see the rings of Saturn, the craters of the moon as well as beautiful star clusters and nebulae. On the night, attendees will be taken on a ‘tour of the universe’ with talks by NASA scientists and observations on several telescopes.
Warm clothing is recommended. In the event of cloudy/bad weather, star gazing will be cancelled and all registrants will be contacted via Eventbrite. The talks will go ahead regardless of the weather.
