Guinness World Record Attempt

Robert Luxford Moon

Sydney City Skywatchers combined with Sydney Observatory and thousands of others at Centennial Park on Wednesday 23rd May 2018, 7:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m. to help break the Guinness World Record for Stargazing.

Several of our society brought their own telescopes and showed members of the public how wonderful the Moon and Jupiter looked. It was a wonderfully clear evening. Robert took the image of the Moon above through his telescope eyepiece, and Ross Mitchell took the image of the Moon below through the eyepiece with his smartphone.

If you joined us and would like to become a member of our society please use this link to join or send an email to: Our next event is Monday 5 June with a special presentation 'Through the eyepiece' by citizen astronomer, Jeff Portelli. Link here for more information.

Our next viewing night will be Stargazing at Rouse Hill House & Farm on Saturday 18 August with Sydney Observatory, astronomer Kirsten Banks and Darug elder, Leanne Watson. This is part of Sydney Science festival. If you want to be part of this evening please book in early- it will fill up! Sydney City Skywatchers who will help with telescopes must register with our secretary by email:
