In partnership with the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne, ACMI presents an exciting opportunity to be immersed in the worlds of space science and art.

Hear artists and curators from the Star Voyager exhibition speak about their work viewing the sun, then be guided to the Melbourne Observatory by an expert from the Astronomical Society of Victoria, who will conduct a demonstration of the telescope and give audience members a rare sight of the moons and storms of Jupiter.

Panellists include ACMI curator Sarah Tutton and artist Willow S. Wieland, whose work Yelling at Stars was Australia's first inter-stellar message to be transmitted deep into outer space.

Ticket price includes entry to the Star Voyager exhibition, panel talk and tour of the Melbourne Observatory at the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne.
