You might call us out on getting soft for asking this... but do you remember the last time you took a moment to appreciate the stars? Yeah, us neither. Luckily, we have the University of Western Sydney Observatory to help us out! The Observatory runs programs that are open to the public regularly and their state of the art equipment means you're sure to get a proper view of the cosmos (weather allowing). A heads up for any keen beans: plenty of fun is planned their 20th Anniversary, coming up this weekend on the 24th of October.
