Jupiter reached opposition (It’s closest point to earth this year) in early November and is currently one of the brightest objects in the night sky.

Come along to learn more about this Joivan World, The Ballarat Municipal Observatory and view stellar objects through a telescope. The moon will be below the horizon during viewing allowing Jupiter and Saturn to really stand out!

If Cloudy, the program will still go ahead with their virtual night sky program.

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
