Telescope observing evening for BAS members and their guests. This is not a public observing evening.
- maximum of 30 participants
- wide social distancing telescope setup spacing
The site is a privately owned aero modelling field (Calvert Aero Modelling Society – Gratton Field) kindly made available to BAS by the owners. The entrance is off Bourkes Road, West, a few minutes drives west of Rosewood. The property entrance track has a strict speed limit of 20kph, in order to minimise dust and damage to the track surface. This limit is strickly applied – so stick to it! The telescope setup areas are the open grassed carpark and flight field adjacent to the aero club buildings. The site has excellent facilities – toilets, kitchen, refrigerator, kettle, clubhouse lounge area. An attendance fee of $10/telescope is payable on the night.
Event start time is from around sunset and extend until sunrise the next day.
On-site camping is permissible, but bring everything you need.
BAS will also trial conducting dark-sky evenings on the same dates as Calvery, but located at Cunningham Lookout, just west of Warrill View.
