The Mobile Observatory brings you the best views of the universe outside of a professional observatory. With Australia's largest mobile telescope for public viewing the views are truly out of this world.
This engaging, informative and inspiring astronomy experience will spark your imagination and childlike wonder!
So much of the Universe is hidden behind distance and time, but with our Observatory sized telescopes, a seemingly empty area of the night sky comes alive to reveal nebulas, star clusters and even far-away galaxies!
Depending on the current phase of the moon you will see its craters and lava lakes appear close enough to touch; while on a moonless night the dark skies reveal fainter objects and even distant galaxies!
Neighbouring planets like Jupiter and Saturn are always a favourite and visible most nights between May and early October; as are some beautiful nebulae, brilliant star clusters and more, during this engaging and informative Astronomy Tour.
While science is the larger part of astronomy, we will give you only as much of the science aspect as you want. Whether it's a little or a lot; you get to decide!
Have you ever wanted to see the Rings of Saturn or perhaps the great storm of Jupiter? With The Mobile Observatory you can experience them as few people have ever had the opportunity to.
Who doesn't love the moon? (Aside from anyone trying to look at galaxies. Right, well, moving on... )
Well, it's our closest neighbour and through our telescopes you'll be able to see it in such incredible detail you'll think you could reach out and touch it.
When the moon is dark the Universe's hidden wonders become visible.
See Nebula's, Globular Clusters and light from Galaxies that have been travelling to you since the time of the Dinosaurs over 60 Million years ago.
Our top quality equipment will give you the best views possible. From our 22" Observatory sized telescope to the best eyepieces on the market, everything we do is designed to give you an amazing astronomy experience.
We are a true 'Mobile Observatory' and we can operate anywhere in Western Australia. From April until October we will be operating between Exmouth and Carnarvon and everywhere in between.
