Public Night

Sky Viewing Evenings


The Astronomical Society of Tasmania hosts its popular Public Night Sky Viewing Evenings at our observing site at Mount Pleasant.


It is an opportunity for people and families of all ages to see the many wonders of the southern night sky through telescopes with expert guides from the Society.


Our Night Sky Viewing Evenings are normally scheduled in either late autumn or early spring to avoid the very cold winter months and the long daylight hours in summer. Where possible, the dates are set to provide wonderful views of a first quarter Moon, planets in our Solar System and glittering star clusters, globular clusters, nebulae and galaxies.


The event is open to everyone and there is no need to register.


Entry is $5 per person with children under 16 free.
