Fascinating evening – Donna made the night sky come alive! Her knowledge is endless as is her enthusiasm. We saw 4 of Jupiter’s moon as well as a transit shadow, Saturn rings, a “jewellery box” of stars as well as various other star burst, old and new. Would highly recommend a visit 😊

Amazing Stargazing Experience – I highly recommend the stargazing tour from Donna the Astronomer! She was so very gracious and helpful in answering my questions/giving me advice for planning my trip. She was very knowledgeable and open to answering all sorts of questions. We saw a plethora of amazing night sky features like comets, nebulae, planets, dying stars, clusters, and galaxies. She also gave information about native lore, astronomical history, and fun space facts. Loved it and would definitely go again!

Must do when in Coonabarabran – best stargazing night – We enjoyed Donna’s commentary with so much wonderful stories and facts. We were able to see stars, galaxies, constellations and so much more. Donna the Astronomer’s show is definitely a must.

Donna the (Star) Explorer – Even though the main telescope was under refurbishment- Donna did an amazing job talking us through the constellations, nebulae, planets, solar system, galaxies etc.. She is a Star Nerd and her passion in the night skies shows. We peered through smaller telescopes but they were big enough to see planets and stars up close. I’m definitely coming back when the main scope is fixed 🙂

Perfect Experience – We had such a wonderful time at the observatory. Donna was the perfect host, incredibly knowledgable and funny. The location of the observatory was great and the moon, stars, and planets in sky looked so much brighter than I’ve ever seen them. Seeing them through the telescope was even better. I would highly recommend this wonderful experience.
