    Event Information

    Come and view the astonishing southern night sky through our telescopes with Donna the Astronomer and enjoy our "Night Sky Show".

    The Night Sky Show is presented by our resident astronomer and offers telescope views and a tour of the pristine dark skies from the incredibly dark sky location at Milroy Observatory, Coonabarabran. Our shows are hands-on and you will have the opportunity to look at many objects through a telescope.

    If you have binoculars - please feel free to bring them along and I can point out objects of interest as well.

    Your tour commences with a guided walk through our Milky Way galaxy, stopping off at constellations including the visible signs of the Zodiac 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 ever-changing sky.
