+ Google Map

A naked-eye tour of the Southern Night Sky in February 2020, led by Art Harvey an experienced guide from the Observatory. Art will use a powerful laser pointer to direct attention to each object we see. Venus will be dipping towards the western horizon early in the evening. To the north along the ecliptic plane, we will see the zodiacal constellations Taurus and Gemini ...and this is only the beginning there will be much more to see. The moon will not be visible from 7.30pm to midnight and the Oval lights will be turned off so viewing of the night sky will be optimal. It is an exciting follow-up to the brilliant talk Art gave to the DRB Nats in 2019 - he is back by popular demand. Please book in...
