Imagine having all night to explore the universe with Australia's largest mobile telescope for public viewing under a blanket of stars away from city lights...
This is a unique opportunity to join a small group of like minded people and spend the night discovering amazing wonders hidden in the night sky. During a regular astronomy session the viewings are limited to what is available early in the night.
Having the telescopes set-up all night means you can see it all: outstanding views of Jupiter and Saturn, beautiful star clusters sparkling like diamonds and intriguing nebulas of many shapes and sizes.
You will also be among the selected few to have seen another galaxy first hand. There is something deeply awe inspiring in realising we are seeing light that has been traveling across the universe for millions of years..
Join us for an unforgettable night of cosmic exploration and experience wonder.
What You'll Get
Join us for an unforgettable adventure under the stars as we spend all night exploring our universe through a massive 2.3m tall telescope!
During a regular astronomy session the viewings are restricted to what is visible early in the night. Having the telescopes set-up all night means you can see it all... from the lunar landscape of deep craters appearing close enough to touch to Saturn's fascinating rings and galaxies millions of light years away!
Discover beautiful star clusters including one of 10 million stars, nebulas of intriguing shapes and sizes... and see the rugged lunar landscape of deep craters and mountain ranges appear close enough to touch.
This will be an interactive experience with plenty of time to learn fascinating facts about our universe, enjoy incredible views through our powerful telescopes and join in many interesting conversations.
