After a two-year hiatus, Macquarie University is bringing back its annual astronomy night at the uni's North Ryde campus on Saturday, September 17. The night will kick off at 5pm and will feature a range of intergalactic activities that will engage and entertain space aficionados of all ages.

There is a tonne of fun and exciting activations taking place throughout the event. You can head to the physics magic show that will be wowing audiences with clever scientific tricks, a telescope park where you can take a guided tour of the stars, a range of talks from Macquarie University academics and experts, and a robotics room where you can even drive an interactive robot. Plus, the planetarium will be in full swing, showing immersive peaks into the expanses of the universe.

With the number of amateur astronomers in Sydney, pre-purchasing tickets is a must. Passes for the event are available for $38 for adults, $24 for concession card holders and $22 for kids.
