Mount Burnett Observatory are launching a new monthly series of live streams to bring the wonders of the universe to you. A Night at the Observatory will be held on Friday 4 September 2020 from 7.15pm to 8.30pm via Zoom. They will be hosting the first 100 people in Zoom chat, who will have first dibs to ask questions throughout the night; the best of which will be answered at the end of the stream. The rest of the overflow will be directed to a Livestream on Facebook.
In this first episode, you'll get a guided tour of the King of the Planets, Jupiter; an intro to Earth's place in the solar system; and a little history of the observatory. The first in a series of mini-documentaries about space, get insight into how looking up to the sky can keep you grounded in these uncertain times. Stay in touch via the event page link given, where you can direct your questions to the organisers via the discussion section. As they are (volunteers) just cutting their teeth on this new event, they're still working it all out and will be posting the link and more details pretty soon, so keep checking back on that event page and make sure you hit 'going' so you get a reminder.
