When it comes to space, there's never a bad night to peer at the heavens; however this July might just be a better time than most. Unless you've been trapped under a lunar rock, you'll know that this month marks 50 years since the Apollo 11 mission landed on the moon, heralding humanity's first small steps and giant leaps on the Earth's only natural satellite.

To celebrate — and to just get Sydneysiders staring at the sky anyway — Australian Geographic is hosting stargazing nights at various stores. When you're done with the 9–5 grind on Thursday, July 11, just head to Westfield Warringah Mall, Penrith or Miranda, or Rouse Hill Town Centre, and prepare to look up. Prefer to mosey along Thursday, July 18? Then Hurstville has you sorted.

Some stores require bookings. Otherwise, simply make your way to your closest spot, take a gander through a few telescopes, chat to experts, and learn more about everything from space photography to star guides.

Times and locations vary at each shopping centre — you'll be staring up from a site outside, obviously, including from the rooftop if you're going to Miranda.
