Need a bit of thrill in your life? Perth Observatory is teaming up with Spacechameleon Adventure Co to organise a family friendly event where you can abseil our Lowell Telescope Dome and look through the telescopes at some cool stellar objects. Each participant will get 3 abseils through the dome's trap door and descend the full 12 metre in a controlled free fall to the ground. You can also abseil upside down just like Tom Cruise if you choose to do so ;).
Both abseiling and climbing challenge your primal fears, with falling being the most primal of all. You'll learn how to apply the rational mind to understand irrational fears, leads to a greater level of control in many other aspects of day-to-day life. Spacechameleon Adventure Co caters for beginners as well as adrenaline junkies and the event will go ahead rain or shine.
On the night, we'll be able to show you the Moon, Jupiter, Saturn, and star clusters. If it's cloudy we'll then provide you with an amazing guided tour of the Observatory and an astronomical presentation.
