Starry House

Thursday 24th September / presented by Chris Mason

The Perth Observatory is WA’s oldest and is actively involved in public education through Day Tours for schools as well as Star Viewing Nights for the public.

Besides the discovery of 29 Minor Planets between 1970 and 1999, the Observatory co-discovered Uranus's ring system and published numerous Meridian Catalogues during its research.

In 2013, research programs and science education workshops at the centre were cut, reducing activities of an organisation that takes science to the people.

Now, the Perth Observatory Volunteer Group is running the centre, giving you the opportunity to become more involved in its activities.

Amateur astronomer Matthew Woods joined us to talk about the Observatory's development.
