Indigenous Stargazing

THIS EVENT IS PART OF THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION OF APOLLO 11'S LANDING ON THE MOON. MORE DETAILS ABOUT MOON WEEK AT ANU IN JULY HERE

Did you know that Aboriginal peoples are considered the world's first astronomers? Come along and hear our Indigenous astronomer, Pete Swanton, chat about Australia's rich and extensive history of stargazing and how it differs from Western methods that we often use today. You'll even have the chance to look through our telescopes and see some of these objects.

Warm clothing is recommended. In the event of cloudy/bad weather, stargazing will be cancelled and all registrants will be contacted via Eventbrite.

Presented in partnership with ACT Government.
