The Planets – Music and Science in the Park

Presented by Botanic Gardens and Centennial Parklands

Where music and science meet… Listen to the beautiful Planets by Gustav Holst, performed by the Sydney Youth Orchestras, before embarking on an evening of star and planet gazing.

Dr Luke Barnes from Western Sydney University gives an introduction to stargazing and astronomy, and amateur astronomy enthusiasts, the Sydney City Skywatchers, provide their amazing telescopes and guidance to peruse the night sky.

Let the music inspire you (and find the parts that inspired Star Wars!).
