Enjoy a night of stars and win prizes, with a presentation from UniSA and Adelaide Planetarium Astronomer, Mary Adams. Sit back as Mary ignites your curiosity by taking you on a journey through the night sky, exploring constellations, the lifecycle of stars, and touching on the star's significance to Australia’s first peoples. Mary will then delve into one of the universe’s strangest objects – black holes. The talk will conclude with a Q&A session.

Please submit any questions you have for Mary upon booking. Please note that although Mary will do her best to answer all questions submitted, due to time restraints this may not be possible.

This presentation is recommended for adults and youth aged 14+.

Drinks will be available for purchase on the night from the bar.
