Mt. Stromlo Public Astronomy Night

Date & time: 5.30–7.30am 8 October 2016, AEST (Australian Eastern Standard Time)
Location: Mt Stromlo Observatory via Cotter Road Weston Creek ACT 2611 Australia

Mount Stromlo Observatory in conjunction with the Canberra Astronomical Society invite the Canberra community to attend our public observing nights of 2016. 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 astronomers from Mt. Stromlo Observatory, and observations on several telescopes.

Entry by gold coin donation. Warm clothing is recommended.

In the event of cloudy/bad weather, star gazing will be cancelled (the talks will occur regardless of the weather). You can check out the weather at Mt Stromlo using our all sky camera: rsaa.anu.edu.au/observers/observing-rsaa/mount-stromlo-all-sky-camera
