Aboriginal Astronomy Night
- Duration: 2 Hours (approx.)
- Location: Gingin, Western Australia
- Product code: AAN
Our pledge at the Gravity Discovery Centre and Observatory is to provide a platform for Dr Noel Nannup and other Nannup family members to tell the dreamtime stories of how earth was created. Following storytelling the Indigenous constellations will then be showcased during a laser guided tour of the night sky, before moving onward to the observatory to gaze at the stars. The Gravity Discovery Centre and Observatory hosts an Aboriginal Storytelling and Astronomy night once a week.
Public night stargazing visits are held regardless of the weather. If viewing through the scopes is not possible, due to inclement weather, a fun and informative session will be held in the GDC Theatre and a cloudy night pass will be issued (free return).
The Gravity Café will be open until half an hour before your session starts and dinner bookings are preferred but not essential.
