What a wonderful weekend it was at this beautiful rainforest retreat that’s situated on top of Green Mountain at Lamington National Park in QLD.
On Saturday evening I gave a talk about our Moon in the theatrette and then we headed outside to look through my large telescope at the main attraction for the night, our amazing Moon.
After giving a star tour of the night sky to show everyone the constellations in the night sky, everyone then lined up to look into the telescope to view the Moon. I let every person control the telescope with the hand controller to look around the lunar surface, and they were so amazed at the stunning detail on the surface of the Moon…Wow!
The sky conditions on the night were just perfect and many guests; staff from O’Reilly’s and family groups from the campground on the mountain came along to enjoy the night.
It was such a joy to share this experience with everyone, as this is what NASA’s InOMN is all about, sharing the wonder of the Moon and planets with our community.
Thank you to the staff from O’Reilly’s for making my husband and I very welcomed and I’m sure everybody enjoyed there lunar night for NASA’s InOMN.
Please find some links below for O’Reilly’s and also for information on the world heritage Lamington National Park; this is one of my favourite places to visit and go bushwalking and stargazing :-)
