Condo SkyFest

A tentative date has been set for the first Condo SkyFest to be held at the Wiradjuri Study Centre, in the small inland town of Condobolin, New South Wales: November 9-10, 2018.

This event was initiated through our Big Skies Collaboration‘s Wiradjuri Skywriters Pilot Project in 2018 and, we hope, will grow from a local celebration of 60,000+ years of astronomy in Wiradjuri Country into a major astro-event on our Inland Astro-Trail. More soon.

Uncle Dick with the Wiradjuri Study Centre’s first telescope, a little National Geographic 76/350 Dobsonian donated for SkyFest by the Skywriters Project.  All you astronomers with bigger kit, please don’t laugh — because this little ‘scope will, we hope, inspire dozens of local kids to learn more about the night sky, and maybe even become astronomers themselves!  With Uncle Dick are the Study Centre’s cultural officer and SkyFest coordinator Tennille Dunn (far left),  Wiradjuri Condobolin Corporation’s Executive Director Ally Coe (far right), and the Skywriters Project’s coordinator/Creative Collaborator, Merrill Findlay.
