International Dark Sky Week

It may seem harmless, but light pollution has far-reaching consequences that are harmful to all living things. Effective outdoor lighting reduces light pollution, leading to a better quality of life for all. The dark sky movement is working to bring better lighting to communities around the world so that all life can thrive.

Enter the competition and go into the draw to win a 6″ Dobsonian Reflector Telescope. Australia-wide entries welcome.

Each entrant will receive a 20% discount to visit the Observatory on School Term nights or during the School Holiday Programs over 2021.

The visit includes a tour, 3D movies and viewing at the telescopes.
