Tamworth Regional Astronomy Club Star Party
East Tamworth, NSW, Australia
Join Tamworth Regional Astronomy Club and ABC Stargazing as they attempt to set a new Guinness World Record for the Most People Stargazing Across Multiple Venues.
For this record, the participants will stargaze at the Moon through a telescope or binoculars for a 10-minute period simultaneously across multiple sites throughout Australia. The current World Record, set in 2015 by the Australian National University, stands at 7,960 people across 37 locations. We are aiming to set a record so large that it will be nearly impossible to break again.
You can participate in our world record attempt or just come along for the BBQ, live broadcast and casual stargazing.
Tickets are free if you're bringing your own scope/binoculars (though a gold coin donation on entry would be appreciated) or purchase a telescope for $7.15 with your ticket (great value! a telescope for $7.15!).

8.00pm: Stargazing Live broadcast commences (World Record attempt will take place between 8.00pm and 9.00pm)
