Donna the Astronomer

I am a keen astronomer lucky enough to live and work in Coonabarabran the Astronomy Capital of Australia! I am a ‘Drover’s Brat’ and discoverer of a couple of comets and asteroids. I operate Milroy Observatory and can show you how to best integrate dark sky experiences into your tourism, farm stay or AirBnB business.

    Hey Donna, we visited you on Monday night ( the annoying early ones for the 8pm session!) . Could you please remind us (husband Troy wants to know) where in the sky to find your ‘field of baby diamonds’. Thanks, Shannon 🙂

    1. Find the false cross and look below to right and find the fuzzy bunch of stars or in an app look for C85 or Caldwell 85
