Event:
Be part of making a record
On May the 23rd, the Australian National University will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for Most People Stargazing Across Multiple Venues. For this record, the participants will stargaze at the Moon through a telescope or binoculars for a 10-minute period. The last successful attempt recorded 7,960 people stargazing across 37 locations in Australia, and the ANU wants to break that record with an even bigger amount of stargazers are more locations.

Everybody is invited to come along for this free event, although you do need to bring your own binoculars or telescopes to view the moon, and if you don't have any then you can purchase some for $7 and collect them on the night.

Please note, that sharing of equipment is not possible and everybody requires their own binoculars or telescopes. Sharing these items will result in disqualification from the attempt.
