Winter Festival – Starry Nights – School Holiday Program 1-29 July


Stunning Starry Winter Nights

1st July – 31st July

Tuesday, Thursday and  Saturday  only 

It is verrrrrrry cold in  winter, but if you put on all your warmest woollies and come out,

you will enjoy the best stunning evenings winter has to offer…..the best in the whole year!

Jupiter and Saturn are in the evening sky now, and the centre of our Milky Way galaxy is overhead.

In the cosy Baker Hall, our new show ROSETTA.

Rosetta was a space probe built by the European Space Agency launched on 2 March 2004. Along with Philae, its lander module, Rosetta performed a detailed study of comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko. Rosetta is a film about the first landing of a satellite on a Comet. The film is introduced by Klim Ivanovych Churyumov who along with  Svetlana Ivanovna Gerasimenko,  discovered the comet.

Outside an OPEN FIRE and inside warm drinks to keep you warm whilst viewing our

spectacular winter night sky. The viewing is best in winter when there is a frost in the air, the clarity of

objects is quite stunning. The Emu, near the centre of our Milky Way galaxy, is a beautiful object to observe.
