Gold Coast Astronomy is excited to announce our first Official 2021 Public Event: Intro to Astronomy
Join Beechmont’s own passionate Amateur Astronomer John McDonald as he introduces you to the oldest field of science, Astronomy, from its earliest forms to the modern applications. John’s tailored talk will cover many interesting facts and simplify the science that is Astronomy.
The night will include a dark sky guided tour and telescope viewing of all the visible wonders the Southern Celestial Hemisphere has to offer this January.
Complimentary tea and coffee will be provided throughout the night.
Gold Coast Astronomy ensures you memorialise your experience with a take home star chart of the night, summary of key visible celestial objects, and an opportunity to capture, with your mobile, your very own snaps through one of our telescopes.
In order to offer an unforgettable experience this event has Limited Tickets available, be quick to secure yours today!
We look forward to you joining us and embarking on an educational and memorable night exploring our Galaxy and beyond…
