With the help of a suitable torch and a star map that you will receive, in this practical course you will learn how to find your way around the winter night sky. What can you see in the night sky apart from the Moon and planets and how do you find them? How can you take your own stunning photographs of the night sky? There is also time to view through Sydney Observatory’s telescopes.

This 6-week course takes place from 6–8pm Wednesday nights from 27 July – 31 August.
