Mt. Stromlo Observatory Site Tour

http://rsaa.anu.edu.au/news-events/mt-stromlo-observatory-site-tour-0

Take a walking tour of the Mount Stromlo Observatory and learn about one of Canberra’s oldest sites. Mount Stromlo Observatory has been carrying out astronomical observations for over 100 years and, prior to the 2003 firestorm, had grown from a small outpost of pioneering astronomers to one of the great observatories of the world.

    Yes - a fun commentary from Emma! Yes - beautiful views too. Sadly, though, after waiting twenty minutes including advising the waitress that we were ready to order, we left the cafe there and had our brunch elsewhere. Ignoring that, it was a lovely way to spend a morning. If you're part of the over 50s group, you will see they're doing the night viewing on 9 May, which could be fun too, except we must be elsewhere

    Hi Pauline, Just saw your first message, at the same time as your 2nd one. Sorry you can't make it this time. Ticket still available for somebody else.

    I have a spare ticket. Happy to pass it on to the first taker. Let me know, and see you at Scope Cafe just before 10am tomorrow Saturday.

      Hi Etel. Is your ticket still available? I've just joined and it sounds interesting

      April 25, 2014

    • Pauline

      No matter. Something's come up and I can't attend after all. I hope they have another one.

    Which website rsvp are you referring to? You must book via the link that rowena put up on 28 March (eventbrite) - is that the one you're trying to register on? If it is, then I suppose the event is full. If it isn't, give it a go! https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/mt-stromlo-observatory-site-tour-tickets-10234522733

    Would like to attend however website RSVP does not allow you to choose 26 April. Does this mean it is already fully booked?

    April 19, 2014

    • Scott

      Ditto. I'd like to come along and discovered the same. Perhaps a separate meet-up booking has been made?
