This LCA is shaping up to be full of astronomical goodness, and we're very near a bunch™ of very cool radio astronomy facilities.

To complement the Astronomy Miniconf, we're aiming to organise at least one site visit to an operational astronomy facility - most likely the [http://www.ivec.org/ivec-projects/pawsey/ Pawsey Centre], a new supercomputing facility that will be part of the SKA project.

We've had very strong interest from delegates on the LCA2014 chat list in attending the Perth Observatory for a night-time stargazing tour. Everyone needs to make their own booking, and bookings need to be made soon as spots will fill up quickly. The observatory doesn't have an online booking/payment system, so you'll need to call them with your credit card details to reserve your spot.

+
Bookings can be made by phoning (08) 9293 8255 between 8.30am and 3.30pm (AWST, 3 hours behind AEDT), Monday to Friday. Tickets are $38 for adults, $28 for children/concession card holders.

'''The night we're booking for is Monday 6th January.'''

Once you've made your booking, please add your name below so that I can keep track of those attending.

====Transportation====
+
 
+
The logistics of getting everyone to the observatory is possibly going to be tricky. Getting there by public bus would take a little over 2 hours, which almost certainly rules that out. The only viable options would seem to be car-pooling (locals and/or sharing hire cars and/or sharing cabs). The observatory is 38km from UWA. If enough people book for the observatory ~and~ if we can coordinate things well enough, it may be possible to book (a) mini-bus(ses) for the evening if we can find people with the appropriate licence amongst delegates, or we may be able to book a charter bus if we get 40+ people going. But that all takes organisation and (most importantly) the ability to collect money in advance - which usually proves difficult, at best.
+
 
+
To get a feel for how doable car-pooling is, if you're a Perth local (or will have a hire car on the Monday evening) and are able to assist with transport, please put your name and number of spare seats available below.
