Astronomical Society helps smash world record!



The Astronomical Society helped set a world record for the most number of people stargazing at once! 

With over 135 UOW club members, other students and families attending and 116 participants in the world record attempt, Wollongong truly contributed to a royal smashing of the record. More than 40,000 people across Australia were registered observing the moon through telescopes for 10 minutes, eclipsing the previous record set by ANU in 2015 of 7,960 people.

Congratulations Astronomical Society for participating and helping organising such a great event!
