The day has finally come!
Expect a packed program.
Entry is at 5pm through the Planetarium Entrance on the Craig St side.
Limited tickets will be on sale tonight, but you can still get your ticket through Eventbrite. Make sure you have your Eventbrite ticket with you and ready to be scanned.
Inside the foyer you can see some amazing videos from NASA and ESA
Astronomy isn’t just going outdoors at night and looking up at the night sky,
getting cold and hoping it doesn’t rain. You can do astronomy indoors,
during the day (or night) from the comfort of your own computer.
Chris from MBO will be showing some of the many ways you can follow space missions
online, including the latest images from Mars, Saturn, Pluto and Ceres, as
well as seeing the sun in whole new ways (and if you’re really lucky, spotting
a comet into the bargain).
He’ll also be showing a series of videos from NASA, ESA and the Australian SKA
Then make sure you head to the Amphitheatre by 5:15pm to hear Hon Tim Watt MP
open the event. Tim is the federal member for Gellibrand and we thank him for giving up his precious time to attend the festival. We look forward to showing him some of the amazing science we have going on in Melbourne and Australia.
Enjoy the night!
