Young Observers Event Night

October 28, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm AEDT

- Free

 Young Observers Event 

 

This month, rather than a Constellation of the Month, we have Non-constellations of the Month – the Magellanic Clouds – a prominent feature of our southern sky.

Our Theme of the Month will be Spacecraft, the same as last month, because, with lots of viewing possible last month, we didn’t get through our planned program.

So you will be able to learn more about the wide variety of man-made objects circling our planet and exploring the depths of space.

Plus, did you know that Halloween has close connections with astronomy?

If you would like to try out your Halloween costume before the night, please feel free. Outfits with an astronomical theme would be excellent.

Please note that, with Daylight Saving now applied, there is no point turning up early for extra viewing, as the skies will not be dark enough until much later.

We will still start the session at 7.30 pm in the cabin and, weather permitting, we will observe Saturn, Jupiter and other astronomical wonders when it gets dark.

Our monthly event for our Amazing Young Observers which we look forward to seeing all your wonderful faces at the event.

When booking, choose a role from the drop down box when booking tickets. Select the age group that works for each child.

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.
