Event description

Description

Grab the opportunity to become "Skyentists" for the evening, as you and your family enjoy the wonders of the southern night sky with local amateur astronomers. See planets such as Mars or Saturn or perhaps take a closer look at the Moon. Learn about our constellations, closest stars, the galactic core and nebulae in our amazing universe.

The Canterbury Astronomical Society observatory has 3 fixed telescopes (12", 14" and a 16") and an assortment of portable telescopes, which will be open during our public open night programme for 2017. Our introduction talk starts at 7:30pm with a sky tour and telescope viewing until 9:00pm. Opening will be dependent on the weather, so please check our website before heading out to the observatory. We will post a status update before 6:45pm confirming whether we are open or not on our website.

FOR LARGE GROUP SALES, please contact bookings@cas.org.nz for your Ticket Reservation promo code.

Further information of our outreach public open nights can be found on our website www.cas.org.nz

Please note that we can not accept gate entry to sold out events. However, you can book a Season Pass for entry to all of our Public Open Nights.

Unfortunately weather can effect viewing. In the event that we are closed due to weather, you can get a refund and re-book on-line. We will typically run a replacement event the following Friday, but you will be refunded to allow you to re-book on any available night.

You can re-book or get a refund up to 7 days before the event starts, but refunds or re-bookings are not available after this time, unless the event has been cancelled by weather. If you need to contact us after you have purchased tickets, please use the contact organiser link in the email that contained your ticjket information
