Usually, when you're looking at something, you're staring straight ahead. Even if you're watching a movie in a reclining chair (hello Gold Class), you're peering forward. That isn't the case at the Sir Thomas Brisbane Planetarium, however. Thanks to its dome — aka its main attraction — you'll be staring upwards here.

Each weekend at 3pm, you'll be looking up as part of the Mt Coot-tha site's Afternoon Live sessions, too — which will be happening on both Saturdays and Sundays from Saturday, July 31. Get comfy, direct your eyes towards the heavens, then listen to the Brisbane Planetarium's astronomers talk you through space's wonders. Sure, you learned about the solar system in primary school, but this 50-minute experience also includes a guided tour of the night sky.

And, if you're wondering, the chairs onsite are designed for peering upwards — so you won't get a sore neck.

Also, if you grab a ticket for the sessions on Saturday, July 31 or Sunday, August 1, you'll be treated to a special focus on the moon to celebrate 50 years since the Apollo 15 Moon landing.
