Join The Calyx for a night of astronomy, star gazing and storytelling surrounded by the gorgeous inBLOOM plant display, in the heart of the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney. Let's travel through space to visit mysterious planets far from Earth! More than 4000 planets have been discovered around other stars — tonight Dr Angel Sanchez-Lopez or Professor Fred Watson will take you on a journey to these strange 'other' worlds. How do astronomers discover them? Find out how astronomers detect exoplanets around other stars, and hear about the most interesting planets we have found out there! COVID-10 - Astronomy at The Calyx will be observing strict physical distancing and hygiene measures to protect the health of visitors and staff and minimise the spread of COVID-19.
