Canapes and Constellations

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

25 May 2018 to 22 Sep 2018

Join us for a magical evening under the stars at Darwin’s only rooftop venue, situated on the 16th floor at Ramada Suites Zen Quarter. Start the night viewing Darwin’s spectacular sunset and then stargaze at the planets. This may be the only rooftop in Australia ideal for Urban Stargazing.

You will see Jupiter (and its Moons), Saturn (its magnificent rings and many Moons), our Moon and the Jewel Box.

Guests coming along to our special evening of Stargazing can view through three Celestron 11inch diameter telescopes. These are the “high end” or “professional level” telescopes or the “BMWs” of the telescope world.

Throughout the evening you will be served with selections of hot and cold canapés including oysters, and prawns along with an array of beverages.

Our host is an astronomer who will guide you to see stars, constellations and planets.

Guests can also use the most advanced binoculars available – which feature stabilizing internal gyroscopes. Check out the Night Sky, Darwin’s skyline or the vast horizon from the rooftop, but be careful, once you look through these binoculars, you’ll want your own pair and never be satisfied with normal binoculars ever again.
