Conference Field trip – Friday 9 September

As part of our ANZMapS conference programme we will be including a Field trip on the Friday.

The excursion will commence at 9.30 and will include a visit to the Science Centre & Planetarium, where we will be taking a tour of the cosmos with Astrophysicist Dr Stacey Palen. Cosmic Journey begins on Earth and then shifts to the most distant reaches of the universe. The show features images from NASA’s observatories and the Hubble Space Telescope and the Spiter Space Telescope. Cosmic Journey was created by the Ott Planetarium at Weber State University.

We will then move on to the Australian Hydrographic Service, based in Wollongong, with a presentation and tour led by Lewis Pietrini.

Following lunch at a local sight of great beauty ( still to be chosen!) we will head to the Wollongong’s Local History Library for an overview of the Local History Library including their map collections.The day should finish around 3 pm.

Costs for the day are included in the full registration fee and include lunch.
