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.
Entry is $10.00 per car (PAYABLE AT THE GATE) Register on the "Events" Page
The weather is always a factor when observing. Unfortunately we can't control the weather and we can't observe when there are clouds,haze or rain; so when the weather is bad, the Night will be cancelled.
Please check our Facebook Page at 6.00pm to see if the event is cancelled.
