Stargazers can contemplate the mysteries of the universe at the ultimate astronomy class when the Discover the Night Sky series returns to the Scienceworks' Planetarium on November 7 and 14 from 7pm–10pm.

The November series focuses on Indigenous astronomy, and, more specifically, on star stories and research by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders Peoples — some of the world's earliest astronomers. The evening begins with a screening of Carriberrie: a short film that uses music and dance to explore connections between people, storytelling and the land.

You'll then have a short break — in which to enjoy a complimentary glass of wine and cheese — followed by a presentation under the planetarium dome hosted by accomplished astronomer Dr Duane Hamacher and undergraduate astrophysicist Krystal De Napoli. Both are experts in the field of Indigenous astronomy and will explain ancient knowledge of the night sky. After the presentation, guests will have a chance to stargaze through high-tech telescopes on the Scienceworks Arena.
