About The Event

LEXSA Members - you could win a Star Scratch Map!

To celebrate International Astromomy Day, we're giving our members the chance to win a Star Scratch Map! This map will uncover the hidden world of the night sky, as you scratch away the surface to reveal the gorgeous stars of both the Northern Hemisphere and Southern Hemisphere.

International Astromomy Day was started in 1973 by Doug Berger, the then president of the Astronomical Association of Northern California. Originally, the day was celebrated by setting up telescopes in urban locations in order to make space more accessible to everyone. It's now celebrated within different groups and organisations with 

  • Star Navigation: learn how to navigate using the stars as your guide. Visiting a planetarium to learn even more about the constellations would benefit you more!
  • Sun clocks: Learn how to tell the time using the sun. You can create a replica sun clock using a paper plate and a pencil.
  • Constellations: Learn how to pick out the popular constellations like the Big Dipper, Orion, and Taurus and what time of year they can be seen in the sky.

2 LEXSA Members could win! Your prize includes a Star Scratch Map and a chocolate treat.

To enter, fill out this form and tell us your favourite thing about the night sky.

*Please let us know if you have any dietary requirements incase you're a winner.
