Then come along to our ‘Jupiter in the Park’ evening where our members will be setting up there large telescopes for a FREE viewing night for this Saturday, along The Esplanade waterfront near Mallard Avenue at Paradise Point, from 6.30-9.30pm.
Our local newspaper the Gold Coast Sun have kindly advertised our event in this weeks edition, please also see more details on the flyer below, and come along for a wonderful night of stargazing,

Unfortunately the weather let us done again, but still a couple of hundred people turned up hoping to view the Moon and Jupiter through our telescopes. Even though we were not able to see much of the sky we spend a lot of time talking with many people about the night sky.
The children just loved looking through the telescopes even through it was just at the clouds :-)
