Event description

Description

We're now offering a limited opportunity for you to attend ALL of our Public Open Nights during 2017, in the form of a SEASON PASS.

Our standard cost of entry is Kids: $15 Adults: $20, so the SEASON PASS represents excellent value for money.

PLUS, you can attend either 1 Saturday Members Practical Astronomy session at the observatory or 1 Tuesday Members Monthly Talk at Canterbury University, as a bonus.

Open Nights start from 7 April, Starting at 7:30pm until 9pm
April 7, 21
May 5,19
June 2,16,30
July 28
August 11,25
September 8,22

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.

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

Unfortunately weather can effect viewing. In the event that we are closed due to weather, we will typically run a replacement event the following Friday.

Please note that due to the nature of a season pass, refunds or re-bookings are not available.

Please remember to bring photo ID with your season pass to ensure entry.
