Astronomy Night: New Worlds

Speaker – Dr Nicholas Tothill We have now known about the existence of planets around other stars for almost a quarter-century. We’ve found planets with two suns, planets a bit like the ones we know, and planets very different to anything we’ve seen in our own Solar System. Dr Nick Tothill will talk about some of the planets out there, and how we get to find out about them. Includes presentation, short 3D movie, tour of the dome, and viewing of the night sky through a range of telescopes (weather permitting). $18.00 Adult $12.00 Child/Concession $50.00 Family (2 adults + 2 children) Children under 3 years of age free.
