Revision as of 22:07, 28 December 2014

< Main Page < Programme < BoF Sessions


Given that the Stardome Planetarium Observatory is situated handily close to the University of Auckland venue for LCA2015, I thought we'd organise an Astronomy BoF again this year to complement the Astronomy Miniconf.

Stardome has a gallery/exhibits, and runs a planetarium show on the summer night sky at 8pm. After the planetarium show, there is telescope viewing available which included amateur-grade telescopes in the courtyard, or the option of viewing through the Zeiss 0.5m telescope for a small extra fee.

Please feel free to update this page to include/suggest other options.


Cheers,
