Mt John Observatory – Weekend with the stars

As staff of UC you are also considered part of the UC Alumni Community. We would like to invite you to attend our alumni weekend trip to Mt John on Saturday 29 – Sunday 30 April 2017.

An example of the weekend programme can be seen below, please note that places are limited and this event usually books out within a week.

Mount John Observatory, Alumni Trip April
Mount John Observatory

Programme:
The afternoon starts at 12.45pm Saturday, with a daytime tour of the facilities followed by afternoon tea at the Observatory. We then head down the mountain for some presentations on Astronomy, and dinner.

The buffet dinner will be held after the presentation, we then return to the Observatory where you will be given the opportunity to view the night sky through one of the telescopes (please note that star viewings are weather dependent*).

On Sunday morning we will be joined by Graeme Murray for a geography/nature walk around the Mt John Summit Track, this is  a great way to learn the history of the area. This is the end of our weekend’s activities.

Cost: $115 per person Register here

Please note:
1. Travel: You will need to organise your own travel to and from Tekapo.
2. Accommodation: Accommodation is not included in the price of this tour. Check out the accommodation providers on the Tekapo Tourism site.
3.*Weather conditions: While this is the optimum time of year to visit, the visibility of the stars is still dependent on weather. In the event of cloudy weather, we have an inside lecture after dinner instead. (This happens around once in every three trips. Please note that we cannot refund the payment as it goes towards dinner and the upkeep of Mt John/use of facilities).
4.Group numbers: Due to space constraints of the telescopes and the observatory facilities, and to ensure everyone enjoys a quality experience, the maximum number for this event is 50 people. Registration will close when we reach the allotted number, and you may only register for yourself and one guest.
5. Age of attendees: The recommended minimum age for attendees is 16 years.
