At Perth Observatory Volunteer Group, we are passionate about sharing the wonders of the night sky with everyone, and that’s why we offer off-site astronomy events for councils, schools, and community groups. Since taking over the running of the Observatory in 2015, we’ve travelled to various locations, including Albany, Borden, Carnarvon, Gascoyne Junction, Geraldton, Hyden, Kalbarri, Kalgoorlie, Karratha, Newman, and many more in the Perth metro area. At every event, we’ve received a great response, and attendees have left amazed by the breathtaking objects we’ve shown them in the southern sky.
Our off-site astronomy events typically run for two hours, but we’re always happy to extend the session if people are interested. We can show you the Moon, planets, star clusters, and/or nebulae, depending on the date and location. We also provide a sky talk with a green laser, where we point out different constellations and their fascinating stories.
Our team of experienced and enthusiastic volunteers will bring telescopes, binoculars, and all the necessary equipment to make the event an unforgettable experience. Whether it’s a school group or a community event, we can cater to your needs and tailor the presentation to suit your audience.
Contact us today to discuss booking an off-site astronomy event with us, and let us bring the magic of the night sky to you.
