Parkes Open Days
The Parkes Observatory held Open Days to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moonwalk over the weekend of 20-21 July 2019. Large crowds visited the Observatory and enjoyed activities including tours of the telescope, talks by special guest speakers and astronomers, daytime astronomy viewings of the brightest stars, planets and Sun by the members of the Central West Astronomical Society, and a screening of the film, The Dish, on the Saturday night, in the field adjacent to the telescope the the Dish as a backdrop to the screen. The antenna tours were very popular, with groups being guided through the telescope tower and around the azimuth track.
