Latest Event - The Queensland Astrofest 2022Start date: Thu 21st Jul 2022
BINTEL Will be attending the Queensland Astrofest 2022
The Queensland Astrofest has been the major star party in Queensland since its inception in 1993, and is open to all amateur astronomers. It is convened by the South East Queensland Astronomical Society, the Brisbane Astronomical Society, the Astronomical Association of Queensland, the Amateur Telescope Makers of Queensland, the Southern Astronomical Society, and in 2013 we were delighted to welcome another local astronomy club, Star Gayzers, to take part in Queensland Astrofest and to inject some new energy into the event.
Astrofest 2022 is on. It will take place at Duckadang from Friday 22nd July through to Sunday 31st July 2022.
The July new moon this year falls on the last Friday, the 29th July. On the first Friday, the 22nd the moon will be rising just after midnight and by the Monday it won’t be rising until 03:42 so we should get a good run of clear, moonless nights.
