Description: Observe the cosmos with your own eyes at the Macquarie University Astronomical Observatory. View planets, moons, binary stars, star clusters, nebulae and bright galaxies through our newly upgraded 12″ and 16″ professional in-dome telescopes. Observatory sessions are currently held on Friday and Saturday nights throughout most of the year (excluding public holidays) and run for 90mins, dependent on weather conditions. The planetarium simulates the night sky exactly as it appears from Sydney, including special events such as the transit of Venus or an eclipse of the Sun, and is available, by arrangement, for groups of up to 40 people per session.
