Join the team from Hidden Horizons for this fantastic stargazing event exploring the deep wonders of our Universe! Enjoy a late night tour of the night sky including various constellations and the deep sky objects with them. Use large telescopes to view globular clusters – great balls of stars containing tens of thousands of stars, nebulae, galaxies and even catch a glimpse of some of the planets all from Dalby Forest — one of the darkest places in the country! If the weather is poor then an immersive presentation in a star dome will help you enjoy a virtual tour of the night skies.
