A Fabulous Family Birthday Event

Andrew and David Treat Special Dad Ian To A Very Special Birthday Celebration

Having travelled the world in a busy life – including lying in a swag under the stars in The Simpson Desert, Ian’s milestone birthday warranted a gift fitting the man! And so sons Andrew and David presented their father with a view of the universe; in a manner unlike anything he had done or seen before.

All three enjoyed a fabulous night under perfect, clear skies. The views were of diverse objects from near and far (though nothing is truly “nearby” in astronomy!) Double stars, star forming regions bigger than you could imagine and far away galaxies were all on the observing menu. There were even offerings of “seconds” for objects they wanted to revisit.

For us at Honeysuckles Astronomy Tours, it is always a great source of fun and pleasure to enjoy our guests’ excitement and often bewilderment when first staring through the eyepiece at what is, unimaginable. There are many such objects up in the night sky that will do that for an observer … The universe is simply an amazing place and when looking through the eyepiece of a telescope you are looking at it live – not a photograph! There’s a very special difference. It’s just you … and the galaxy.

Bring yourself on a tour one day … and “stir your imagination” 🙂
