Stars over Bundendore Park
Presented by the Bungendore Park Management Committee
Leave the bright lights of the city and the luminescence of your digital devices for a short while and savour the wonders of the eternal sky at the ‘Stars over Bungendore’ astronomy evening on Friday 17th February 2017 from 7:30pm to 9.30pm.
Richard Tonello of Astronomy Education Services will start with a fascinating presentation after which he will train his telescopes on targets including the constellations of Orion, Southern Cross, Carina, Gemini and Taurus and other cosmic features such as the Great Orion Nebula, the Jewel Box Cluster, the Wishing Well Cluster and the Tarantula Nebula.
Should the weather prevent direct star gazing, an extended presentation will be provided. The event is suitable for adults and children alike.
