Exploring the Universe from the Suburbs

4 July 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Dr Kym Thalassoudis will give an introduction to the night sky and describe how anyone can look up and explore its many wonders using just their eyes, binoculars or a telescope.

Kym enjoys a life-long passion for Astronomy & Space, with several interests including celestial cartography, Astronomy outreach and, most recently, astro-imaging.
He is the Immediate Past President of the Astronomical Society of South Australia.
Since January 2000, Kym has published The Evening Sky Map each month at www.skymaps.com to help sky watchers worldwide discover the wonders of the Universe.
Prior to retirement in early 2019, Kym was employed for 30 years as a Rocket Propulsion Scientist at the Defence, Science & Technology Organisation.

The meeting is scheduled to start at 6:30 pm. We would like to start on time, so if you are coming please arrive ten minutes earlier to find a place. Bring a plate to share and do not forget your cup.
