Friday 22nd February

This Friday night Mt Burnett Observatory is proud to have international award winning astrophotographer Alex Cherney talk to us about how he creates his astronomical images and shows us some of his astounding work. Alex is one of the few people in the world that can say they met Neil Armstrong whilst the first man on the moon perused his images, at an astronomical festival on the Canary Islands some four years ago. This is an exciting night not to be missed.

Supper will follow and then there will be viewing of the heavens through our fleet of telescopes.
