Astronomy Open Night - Macquarie University

The Macquarie University Association for Astronomy (AfA) and the Department of Physics & Astronomy are proud to present the annual Macquarie University Astronomy Open Night.

A much loved annual event for over 25 years, come along for another incredible evening of astronomy, astrophysics, photonics, astrophotonics and all things physics, including a large outdoor area full of telescopes, where you can observe celestial objects for yourself.

There will be up to 30 telescopes aimed at the glittering night sky (weather permitting), operated by both Macquarie University astronomers and amateur astronomers alike.

Don't miss your chance to meet and chat with real-life astronomers, observe stars, planets, nebulae and star clusters.

Also enjoy Robotics Demonstrations, explore the surface of Mars, or try your hand at our Laser Maze.

This is a family friendly event with activities for all ages.
