Space for Girl Guides and Scouts
24 August 2018 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm$5 – $10
The evening aims to build awareness of the Australian night sky and help troops of Girl Guides and Scouts of any age in the journey towards their Outer Space/Astronomy badge/achievement award.
If you belong to an adventurous troop of Girl Guides or Scouts of any age who are seeking to navigate their way amongst the stars and who are working towards their Outer Space or Astronomy badge/award, then this focused evening of stargazing, navigating the night sky and big question answering is for your group.
Your Group Leaders can book your troop with the Mornington Peninsula Astronomical Society at their registered observatory on the Mornington Peninsula, south east of Melbourne. There your group will be walked through the key requirements of the achievement award, followed by practice outside under the night sky with telescopes and binoculars.
Please note that only official Group Leaders can book on behalf of their troop. Bookings by individuals in the troop, or by other members of the public, are not possible.
The observatory is marked on Google Maps and on the Melways at map reference 151/E1.
