This evening, thanks in the main to the City of Kalamunda, Alicia Smith​​​, Pamela Smith​​​, Roslyn Smith​​​, Stephen Gunnell​, Maureen Gell​, (unexpectedly) Michael Thompson​​​, and I all had the chance to take part in a record attempt.

The object was to hold the largest astronomy lesson in the world, at least 30 minutes long

The previous record was held by Taipei, with 836 people. We managed to beat that, with just over 1160!

There were telescopes everywhere! And spotting scopes, and binoculars. And press, and officials from Guinness. Another thing that was great to see was the diversity of people and ages. It really was an all-ages event!

The lesson was fun, the skies perfectly clear, and the crowd was great. There were marshalls make sure everyone was taking part, and pointing out things for the less experienced. And we had a ball.

We are now so looking forward to the Astrofest!
