Planets align for Pluto Twilight Talk


The BMI has arranged a Special Twilight Talk on Sunday the 27th of Sept at 3.30pm about the Space exploration of Pluto by the NASA mission, “New Horizons”.

This is in collaboration with The Ballarat Observatory and included in the cost is a free visit to the observatory at a time of your choosing. This is not to be missed as we all view Pluto on the big screen in the Minerva Space to learn about this fascinating dwarf planet so very far away.

According to NASA, the New Horizons mission will help us understand the worlds at the edge of our solar system. New Horizons will venture deep into the Kuiper Belt, which will tell us more about our solar system planets as they’ve come to be today.

Astronomy expert, Saeed Salimpour has great knowledge and will be encouraging the audience to ask questions.  Please bring your children and grandchildren to this family-friendly event. This educational Twilight Talk is a fundraiser event.
