Outback Astronomy Milky Way Hangout

Milky Way Hangout

The band of the Milky Way is a lost view for many people across the world due to light pollution, haze, vegetation and built-up environments.

In this sky show you can learn about the Milky Way Galaxy and gain perspective about your place within it. This sky show proceeds in clear, dark conditions. It is a great way to become acquainted with the most beautiful, sparkling canvas above you, our night sky.

Allow your eyes to soak up the view. Thousands of stars, swaddled in the hazy band above, will shine brightly for you. As your sky guide dissects the galaxy, allow yourself to be transported away, as if on a virtual galactic cruise. The visibility of the galaxy is magnificent as stars can be seen dripping down to our horizon. All commentary in real time (not recorded).

Expect your senses to shift into hyperdrive as you become deeply immersed in space.
