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 appreciated the opportunity to take a tour of the telescope structure or alternatively a ground tour viewing the Dish from a distance. More than one guest appreciated the chance to see John Bolton Avenue, the tree-lined road leading to the telescope which features in the opening scenes of The Dish. John Bolton was the first Officer in Charge of the Parkes Observatory, including the years when the Dish supported the Apollo missions.
