My interest began during school holiday camps when camping under the stars. Peter saw a magnificent moon-rise as a small child over the Isle of Wight and has continued with a touch of lunacy ever since. We have since been teaching Science in Secondary schools, teaching astronomy in planetaria, being astronaut "groupies", collecting various space related models and artifacts and generally being totally "spaced-out".
Invited to join group by Michael Abdilla, We are also acquainted with Peter Aylward who we happened to meet in the USA when we all saw the penultimate launch of Atlantis.
Hoping to hear more about potential speakers and/or astronaut visits to Victoria. We would be unable to attend many meet-ups as we live on the road with our Mobile Planetarium and are frequently out of Melbourne. We hope we can contribute to the group in some form, however.
My name is Lyn O'Halloran and I have been involved with Earth and Space Education for around 20 years. My partner, Peter Bush, and I started our own Mobile Planetarium and Space Show business in 2009 and now travel to schools in 5 different states.
Very friendly and approachable members.
