The Northern Sydney Astronomical Society, along with Macquarie University Association for Astronomy and the Department of Physics and Astronomy, wants to invite the Community to join us in the celebration of the 25th Anniversary of Macquarie University Astronomy Open Night. A few months earlier this year, on Saturday 18th of May from 5:30 to 9:00 pm, the plan for the night covers a broad range of activities, including stargazing through telescopes, a fantastic Planetarium show and display (very popular!), a lot of activities for the little ones (and no so little too!), exciting Science displays and a very interesting talk about Extremely Large Telescopes, given by Professor Warrick Couch. There’s also BBQ and refreshments around, to keep the energy up!.
NSAS members, along with other Astronomy Societies of Sydney, volunteer with Telescopes and information stands to show the people the wonders of the sky. Discussions are held with the public about telescopes and other equipments, sky objects, weather and light pollution, among other spontaneous subjects. It is a night for learning and enjoyment for the families.
I hope you come along. See you there!
