A Huge Star Gazing Party Is Happening Tomorrow Night

22nd May 2018

You may have just had your annual fill of star gazing at the royal wedding, but now you can do real, science-y stargazing tomorrow night at Western Sydney University. 

This Wednesday night, they’ll be hosting “Star Parties” across western Sydney in an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the most people stargazing across multiple venues. Yep, this is your chance to be a part of history and that’s reason enough to check this bad boy out.

The weather forecast is looking good, and organisers have provided an almost-guarantee that you’ll spot Venus, Jupiter and Saturn (like we said, it’ll be damn good time). 

Bring your own telescope or binoculars if you’ve got them, otherwise there’ll be a limited number of telescopes for sale too. And they won’t leave you going hungry, either. Cake-pop legends Popolate will be onsite, as well as Mate Burger for your American- and Filipino-style burger needs. 

If this sounds wayyy up your alley, head here for more details and to register.
