Uncover the mysteries of the night skies
At school, we learn about the universe, our earth, the sun and other planets in the galaxy. As a child, I can remember my Dad showing me the Southern Cross, the Big Dipper and the North Star , and still today, as I look up into the sky at night, I look for those prominent patterns.

Have you ever wondered why the stars twinkle above you or why you can see some more easily than others? On Saturday 23rd March 2019 at the Cultural Forecourt, South Bank Parklands, you will have the opportunity to learn all about the stars, while exploring the natural luminosity of Brisbane's night sky. This event, Stargazing, is free and commences at 6.00pm for a three-hour period.
The Brisbane Astronomical Society is a group of motivated and friendly amateur astronomers who enjoy observing the skies at night. They hold monthly meetings where beginnings or interested people can come along and talk to like-minded people who can give your practice advice for your newfound interest. Or you are invited to come along to one of the group's public viewing nights or the StarBQ.
