UPDATE: MARCH 31, 2020 — Due to the current government restrictions on public gatherings, The Calyx is currently closed. As a result, Astronomy at The Calyx is cancelled.

Flowers, stars and wine will collide when astronomy comes to The Calyx in the Royal Botanic Garden. The event — which is running on Tuesday, April 7 — invites you to kick back, relax and learn about the night skies.

Dr Angel Lopez-Sanchez will lead the proceedings — he's an astronomy research fellow and a science communicator at the Australian Astronomical Observatory and Macquarie University.

Surrounded by the garden's botanic surrounds, you'll gain a whole new perspective on familiar constellations and learn how to find those that are not-so-familiar. Learn to locate the Jewel Box within the Southern Cross, bright nebulae within Sagittarius and Omega Centauri, a globular cluster.

Tickets are a reasonable $41 and include a glass of wine upon arrival. Tickets always book out well in advance, so you'd be smart to get in quick.
