Event:
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.

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.
