Morn Pen Astronomical Society Public Viewing Nights

Take a trip through the stars from a Mornington Peninsula location thanks to the Mornington Peninsula Astronomical Society. Public Viewing open nights are held monthly at The Briars in Mt Martha and everyone is welcome to attend.

Through a collection of private telescopes, interested members of the public are welcome to take a close up look at the moon and our closest neighbouring planets, along with some interesting stars and clusters, satellites and passing space station, with experts on hand to guide you while explaining what it is you're looking at.

The evening starts at 8pm and includes a selection of multimedia presentations as well as telescope viewings. Some light refreshment is also included free.

The Public Viewing Nights are held regardless of the weather, so don't let the cold or cloud cover deter you. Bookings are absolutely essential as there are limited places available to ensure everyone has ample opportunity to look through the telescopes. Reserve your place or find out more by phoning 0419 253 252 or you can email

Entry is $10 per adult, $5 for children and $25 for families, payable at the gate.

The Mornington Peninsula Astronomical Society Public Viewing Nights are held on the first Friday of every month at the MPAS Observation Centre, The Briars Historic Park, 450 Nepean Highway, Mt Martha.
