Stargazers Morning – School Holiday Activity

Tue 4 October at 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free

Join us on the Museum’s grass roof for a family-friendly morning of daytime stargazing.

Come along to our Stargazers Morning to take a peek into space. Members of the Central West Astronomical Society will be set up with their telescopes to help you gaze out into space and safely view our Sun, planets and bright stars.

We’ll also have some family friendly craft activities set up, and a pop-up Library full of stories about the night sky, space and First Nations science and culture. Make sure you also visit the Museum while you’re here to visit our free exhibition Mulaa Giilang: Wiradjuri stories of the night sky.

Pop in for as long or as little as you like.

This activity is suited to families of all ages, and is free to drop in, although we do ask you to let us know you’re coming by booking a ticket via: https://ORMstargazers.eventbrite.com.au.

About Mulaa Giilang

For First Nations people, the Earth, sea and sky are intimately connected. Looking up, the night sky reflects Dreaming stories, landforms, animals and seasonal patterns, informing the way people live on, and care for, Country.

This exhibition features stunning night sky photography and an immersive soundtrack to explore Wiradjuri astronomical knowledge alongside comparative mythologies from across the world.
