Mt Stromlo Observatory offers evening school/educational group visits. A typical evening visit starts with a welcome by professional astronomers where students will have the opportunity to ask questions. The students then take a tour of the research buildings. The tour includes viewing the labs where instruments for the Giant Magellan Telescope are being built, our Laser Space Debris Telescope, a 250kg meteorite, Professor Brian Schmidt's Nobel Prize and more. The visit then continues with the main part of the evening, a stargazing session using Mt Stromlo's outreach telescopes.
