Tonight will be our chance to find out and learn about "The Night Sky". The presentation will cover: Historical observations, How objects are located (Right Ascension & Declination), Observation of artificial satellites, The bright stars & planets, The zodiacal constellations, The southern constellations and Deep space objects. It will give you an essential guide to naked-eye viewing and through the use of the appropriate software show you the night sky in real time. Our speaker, Arthur Harvey, has been a volunteer at Perth Observatory for over a decade and regularly speaks with the public during night sky tours, school day tours and indeed, all of the Observatory's outreach activities. He has been interested in and enthusiastic about astronomy since 1957 when, as a 7 year old, he saw the Russian sputnik traverse the night sky. Join us for a sparkling night. Only $5 donation from visitors and $1 per visiting child, and $3 donation per member, and you get the chance to win a free door prize too and get refreshments - and even, for only a little extra, win great prizes in our raffle.
