Friday 6th of June, 2014
Come and see the rings of Saturn, the craters of the moon as well as beautiful star clusters and nebulae through the telescopes at Mt. Stromlo Observatory. On the night attendees will be taken on a ‘tour of the universe’ with talks by astronomers from Mt. Stromlo Observatory, including A/Prof. Paul Francis, and observations on several telescopes.
Associate Professor Paul Francis’s popular lecture series has almost 1 million views on YouTube! He is an award winning astronomy educator, and has worked on comets and quasars. Come along and bring questions about your favorite objects, no matter how big or small!
This event is free and open to the public. Warm clothing is recommended. In the event of cloudy weather, star gazing will be cancelled (the talks will occur regardless of the weather). You can check out the weather at Mt Stromlo using the all sky camera.
Friday 6th of June, 7:00 – 9:00 pm.
