Sun Viewing - Our Star
DUE TO COVID-19 WE HAVE HAD TO REDUCE NUMBERS ON EACH TOUR TO COMPLY WITH SOCIAL DISTANCING RULES. IF YOU HAVE ANY ENQUIRIES PLEASE CALL 07 4654 7771.
Since we were children we've been told to not look towards the Sun. Here at the Cosmos Centre we are offering you the unique opportunity to look directly at the Sun through our specially designed solar telescope, witnessing our star as you've never seen it before. Let our guides further your understanding of our most important of stars, strengthening our connection to this most magnificent of cosmic objects.
- View the Sun through our Hydrogen Alpha Sun Telescope, 1 of only 10 ever made!
- Bring your smart phone to capture your own Sun image
- Learn about the biggest and most important star in our galaxy
- Learn about the astronomical story of our Sun through our knowledgable and entertaining guides
- Defy your mother when she told you to never look directly at the Sun and view the Sun through special eclipse glasses
