Footy Oval Astronomy (Bookings Essential)

Mount Burnett Observatory

Mount Burnett Observatory is proud to present Footy Oval Astronomy − a free National Science Week event for the local community and emergency services volunteers, bringing the wonders of astronomy to a wide audience, in person and online. We bring our telescopes to Gembrook Cockatoo Football Netball Club to show visitors the night sky and demonstrate that astronomy is accessible to everyone.

But that is not all! There will be indoor activities including:

  • astronomy talks,
  • computer simulations of the night sky,
  • information on Indigenous astronomy,
  • a live Facebook Q and A stream,
  • a live band, and
  • food vans.

The  event will be broadcast live on Facebook and on Channel 31.

This event is alcohol, smoke and vape free. All parents and carers are asked to keep their children under close supervision at all times.

This Inspiring Australia initiative is supported by the Australian Government as part of National Science Week.
