The Gas Giants in Retrograde with Gold Coast Astronomy
Have you ever heard of a planet turning around and travelling backwards?
This September will see the Gas Giants in retrograde. Join Gold Coast Astronomy’s John McDonald next Saturday, as he shares some interesting facts and explores our Solar System’s Gas Giants, Jupiter and Saturn.
The night will include a guided tour and telescope viewing of all the visible wonders the Southern Celestial Hemisphere has to offer this September.
Complimentary tea, coffee, hot chocolate, and soup will be provided throughout the night.
Gold Coast Astronomy offers you the ability to relive your experience with a take home star chart of the night and summary of key visible celestial objects, as well as the opportunity to capture, with your mobile, your very own snaps through one of our telescopes.
Tickets will be available to purchase via EFTPOS on the night (if not sold out prior) or via our official website!
We look forward to you joining us and embarking on an educational and memorable night exploring our Galaxy and beyond …
