Astronomy Night

This weekend, volunteers from Curtin University in Perth are in town.  Among the volunteers, two of them are astrophysicists and they happened to bring a big ass telescope up with them for Astronomy Night.  It was nice to look at the night sky and actually know what I was looking at for once.  I probably learned more about Magellanic Clouds, Nebulas, Pulsars, and the Andromeda Galaxy than I ever cared to, but it was pretty cool having somebody who knows what to look for in the night sky.  If you ever wanted to look at a clear night sky through a telescope, Laverton is certainly a good place to do it.
