Hear from extragalactic astronomer Dr Caroline Foster, currently the International Telescopes Support Office Fellow at the Australian Astronomical Observatory in Sydney, and ask her your big questions about the Universe.
Then enjoy a short 3D astronomy movie, a tour of the telescope domes and a viewing of the night sky through a variety of telescopes (weather permitting).
This event will include outdoor activities so dress for cold weather.
Penrith Observatory has been providing outreach to the general public for 22 years with engaging programs like public astronomy nights, hands-on workshops for children and special astronomical events. They also offer tailored programs for private group bookings such as school excursions, cub/scout troops and seniors groups.
