Young Observers Event
Our monthly event for our Amazing Young Observers which we look forward to seeing all your wonderful faces at the event.
Our September Constellation of the Month is Pegasus and our theme is Spacecraft.
The first Voyager spacecraft was launched on August 20th, 1977 and it is still operating, 46 years later. Learn more about this amazing piece of engineering and lots of other probes and satellites that have provided us with heaps of data leading to many scientific discoveries. Others allow us to watch events on the other side of the world live, talk on the phone to friends overseas and plan ahead to allow for severe weather conditions.
Our meeting actually happens on the exact day of the Spring Equinox. What does this mean?
Weather permitting, we will observe Saturn and other astronomical objects of interest through the MBO Dobs.
Join us for another special evening of astronomy.
When booking, choose a role from the drop down box when booking tickets. Select the age group that works for each child.
7pm – 7: 30pm if Weather is great, we will have telescopes set up for people that wish to view before the event starts.
7:30 pm – 9:30 pm the rest of the young observers event will be running.
You are all welcome to come so please join us.
“MBO Staff” tickets are for the event coordinators only to use book in.
You will only be allowed onsite if you have a ticket
Please Note: You can book tickets up until 5:00 pm on the day of the event, unless booked out before that. We do have a limited number of people we can have up at the event for safety reasons.
These events are for the younger members of our wonderful Observatory family; anyone from the age of 5 to 15 is welcome to come and enjoy a great night. We also of course welcome accompanying adults, who may also learn something they may not know, plus its a great night to enjoy with your kids.
