Wow, Ooh ahh and Brilliant, are the words you hear as visitors view the incredible beauty of the Milky Way Galaxy, through the powerful Meade telescopes.
Charleville's Cosmos Centre and Observatory is dedicated to ensuring visitors enjoy the wonder of the outback night sky. The guides at the Cosmos Centre share their knowledge and you will observe binary stars, star clusters, planets and the Moon.... more
The Cosmos Centre operates day and night experiences; both activities will build on your knowledge of astronomy and bring you up to date with new discoveries.
Ask yourself have you ever:-
Held a meteorite in your hand? Seen the rings of Saturn? Viewed star clusters 17,000 light years away? Seen the craters on the Moon? Wondered about dwarf planets? Seen the sun through a telescope?
At Astronomy by Day discover the truth about falling stars (they don't!), how the Solar System formed and all about their five new dwarf planets.
It's fun, it's interesting and well worth a trip to the dark open skies of Queensland's Outback.... less
