Earth Hour at the Arts Centre

Earth Hour is when the lights go out, and it ‘s a good time to practice astronomy!

This year Campbelltown Council teamed up with Macarthur Astronomical Society (MAS) to show the night sky to about two hundred visitors during the Earth Hour event “Heart and Soil”.

Also in attendance were members of Wedderburn Rural Fire Service, Australian Botanic Gardens Education Team, Indigenous Elders, local dancers and musicians.

Some of my pictures relate to the striking modern architecture at Campbelltown Arts  but as I’m an astronomer, the images are also biased towards our public outreach that evening.

No photos after dark – the clouds disappeared and the sky cleared!
