Be inspired by the constellations during National Science Week

This family-friendly evening of astronomy will offer visitors fresh insights about the constellations with expert talks, telescope viewings and candlelight classes.

Leading the discussions will be astrophysicist and Wiradjuri woman Kirsten Banks, who will share Indigenous insights about the constellations and her further studies. Indigenous Australians have been observing the night sky for tens of thousands of years, and Rouse Hill continues to be a centre for the Darug people observing the night sky.

As part of the Sydney Science Festival, the night’s exploration will run to an astronomy-themed soundtrack and will also offer a class all about the real star of the sky, the Moon.
