Astrofest, Australia’s premier community astronomy event, is returning to Curtin Stadium on Saturday 18th November for another night of celestial wonders and stargazing.
This annual event is organised by a collective of organisations and is an opportunity for astronomy enthusiasts, families, and the public to explore the mysteries of the Universe.
Astrofest promises an exciting and educational experience for all ages. Visitors will hear from astronomers about what they have discovered in space, plus from those working on building the world’s largest radio observatory – the international SKA project. Gaze into the night sky with over 30 telescopes, explore the astrophotography exhibition, discover the many fun activities for kids and much more.
“Each year, Astrofest brings together people of all backgrounds who share a common passion for the night sky. It’s a fantastic opportunity for everyone to explore the wonders of our Universe and gain a deeper understanding of our place within it” said Leah Kalimeris, Astrofest coordinator. “We are delighted to offer this extraordinary event for free again, ensuring that astronomy remains accessible to all.”
The event is free and open to the public, making it an ideal outing for families, students and anyone interested in space, astronomy, and science.
