Night Sky

Explorer Course


The Society invites people interested in observing the wonders of the southern night skies to attend an introductory astronomy course to be held at the Rosny Library, Rosny Park.


The course is for people who are interested in finding out about the many varied astronomical objects and patterns of stars to be seen on a clear night from Tasmania. It will teach you how to observe with the naked eye, binoculars and telescopes. The course will help participants to recognise and observe star constellations, planets, star clusters, globular clusters, nebulae and galaxies. Information on both the use and purchase of telescopes is included.


No prior knowledge is required for course participants – just an interest in the night sky and a desire to join others for two interesting evenings in an informal learning experience.


The Society’s experienced observers will host and conduct the course -usually held on two successive nights  and of three hours’ duration per night- and provide observing opportunities using the  Society’s telescopes.


Cost: $50.00 per participant with school age children free. 

Rosny Library, 46 Bligh Street, Rosny Park

DATE 2nd and 3rd April 2020  and 24th and 25th September 2020
