    Event Information

    Come and view the astonishing night sky through our telescopes with Donna the Astronomer and enjoy our "Night sky show" 
    The Night Sky Show presented by our resident astronomer, offers views and a tour of the pristine dark skies from the incredibly dark sky location at Milroy Observatory, Coonabarabran.

    Your tour begins outside under the open sky with a guided walk through our Milky way galaxy, stopping off at constellations along the way, as your astronomer explains how the universe works and how stars are formed. Learn about the Southern Cross and how to find south, see the Magellanic Clouds - two galaxies orbiting our own and hear some stories of the Dreaming.

    Donna the Astronomer will take you on a unique journey not only through space but through time itself as you witness the wonders of star birth, globular clusters of stars, even planets if they are visible and much more. You will see that the sky has seasons that beckon you to come back, again and again, to follow and learn more about our changing sky.

    Please note: Due to a lightning strike the historic 40inch telescope is not available for viewing or photography until further notice. We are working on the issue and will keep this updated.

    The 40-inch telescope started life in 1963 as a research instrument and the first of the Siding Spring Observatory telescopes. It provides views of the night sky never before available to the general public! Bring along your DSLR and maybe we can place it on the big scope for an incredible astrophoto on your camera!
