7.00 – 9.00pm Friday 21st August 2015
An attempt on the current world record of the number of people looking through a telescope at different sites in the one Country , at the same time, is to be supported here at the Ballarat Observatory on 21st August 2015.
Bring along all the family and your friends. A 6 day old Moon will be visible and this will be our main object to view for the record attempt.
The special telescope being made for the event is a 3cm aluminium tube telescope with a small, desktop tripod, slide focuser, and works for about 30x magnification which is good enough to resolve some craters on the Moon. The cost for the evening is $10 and includes an official certificate of participation as well as the opportunity to look at other objects. Tea, Coffee and Milo is provided as well!
