Evening School Visit to Mount Stromlo Observatory

Mt. Stromlo observatory offers evening school/educational group visits.  A typical evening visit starts with a welcome by professional astronomers, followed by a 3D astronomy movie viewing. The movie is both fun and educational and lasts about 15 minutes. The group then moves outside for the main part of the evening, a stargazing session using Mt. Stromlo's outreach telescopes.
