Tonight the stars came to Stromlo

family ticket316 was the official count of people who spent 10 arduous minutes hanging out with the stars tonight! More than 453 people came to take a peak at the stars above us, the planets around us and the whole cosmology thing. Thank you to all who attended our school’s efforts to achieve a new Guinness Book of World Records at Star Gazing. Especial thanks to the many who helped make the night a success, such as the Astronomers (of course!), the Jazz band, the food providers, the face painters and all the volunteers who helped ensure that we gazed to the max! Preliminary counts suggest we have smashed the previous record held by Mexico. Stay tuned to the news, Facebook and YouTube to get the full extent of what Australia achieved tonight!
