Astronomy Experience Margaret River

30 January 2020 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Paid event

An astronomy experience like no other! Let our 2.3m tall mobile observatory be your window to the universe and experience wonder!

Imagine exploring the universe through a powerful 2.3m tall mobile observatory and seeing a blurry ball of light transform into a cluster of 10 million stars sparkling like diamonds. Or looking at a fascinating nebula and seeing its intricate shape of gas and dust particles appear clearly before your eyes.

Even the Moon becomes an object of wonder when we ‘zoom in’ to see its rugged landscape of deep craters, basins of solidified lava and tall mountain ranges appear almost close enough to touch. You will have the opportunity to take a photo of the moon through the telescope, to keep the memory forever!

On moonless nights away from city lights, you may even be among the lucky few to ever see a distant galaxy first hand. And if you do, consider that you are seeing the light from stars that has been traveling through space for millions of years before it reached your eyes!

We are passionate about sharing the beauty and wonder of our universe, so join us for 1.5 hours of cosmic exploration and discover a world of endless possibilities.

The Mobile Observatory, for those inspired by the extraordinary!
