Social Stargazing & Astronomy Night – North Beach, WA - Sun 5th Dec 2021

Social Stargazing & Astronomy Night – North Beach, WAJoin us for some astronomy and social stargazing under the stars! We’ll start off with a short 20-30 minute presentation to learn a bit more astronomy before heading out to the oval for some stargazing.

This is a great fun and social stargazing night where you can meet up with other members and make new friends with others who share a love of astronomy and the night sky. You’ll learn some astronomy along the way!

You have a telescope but are not sure how to use it properly.
Members who have been using their telescopes for a while and want to enjoy a fun and social night out and, at the same time, find new things to see in the night sky and learn a bit more astronomy along the way.

We’ll all learn some astronomy!
Beginners or anyone with a new telescope, will receive hands on and practical guidance on setting up and using your new equipment.
For those more confident with telescopes, our Astronomy Guides will be challenging you to find new objects in a dark sky!

WHEN: 7.00pm-9.30pm Sunday 5th December, 2021

Canon 5D MK3 with Sigma 150-600mm lens and Baader AstroFilm solar filter.

Ok so this might be a little premature 4 years out from the event, but hey – why not get the hype machine rolling early right? There’s a lot of time to prepare and practice or at the very least, scratch a few days off your future calendar to come join us and the rest of Sydney for a total solar eclipse with a “greatest duration” of totality that passes right over the Bintel store in Glebe! Almost 4 glorious minutes of darkness await during totality. To check the map for your predicted time and proximity to totality check NASA’s website here.
