Discover more about astronomy with a short course held at Sydney Observatory. These courses are suitable for all adults.
This highly engaging introduction to astronomy provides a memorable understanding of the planets, stars and constellations of our night sky.
Popular astronomy educator Dr Paul Payne uses 3D virtual reality media to provide a history of astronomy and an exploration of different types of telescopes – some of which you’ll use to explore the night sky (weather permitting). Paul brings astronomy alive and contextualises the cosmos in a way that isn’t possible with a textbook or Powerpoint presentation.
The 5-week course takes place from 6–8.30pm weekly and the available courses are:
Tuesdays: 23 July, 30 July, 6 August, 13 August, 20 August
Thursdays: 29 August, 5 September, 12 September, 19 September, 26 September
*Please note there are no classes scheduled the week 17–21 June.
