Been meaning to get into stargazing but don't know where to start? This could be your gateway event. On Wednesday, March 23, you can join thousands of Aussies attempting to smash the World Record for Most People Stargazing Simultaneously Across Multiple Locations in Centennial Park.
There is lots of starry-eyed fun going down across the country, but the Centennial Park celebrations kick off at 7pm. There'll be a little something for stargazers of all levels, including a Q&A with CSIRO and UNSW astronomers, and Indigenous educators telling traditional Aboriginal stories about the stars.
From 8pm, catch the ABC's live stargazing broadcast on the huge outdoor screen, hosted by Julia Zemiro and physicist Brian Cox. There'll also be telescopes available to order, and food trucks on hand in case all that gazing leaves you feeling peckish.
