Learn more about astronomy in the Melbourne Planetarium’s after-dark astronomy classes.

Discover the Night Sky will return in August with a new range of astronomy classes delivered using the Planetarium’s brand new projection system.

March Season

The Melbourne Planetarium’s projection system will be undergoing a major technology upgrade in mid-2013. The new system will provide a more immersive and seamless experience, with brighter images and higher resolution.

In anticipation of the upgrade, usage of the current system is restricted in the short term. 

Hence, Discover the Night Sky, which usually operates on Thursday evenings during March, will not be offered.
