3 Day Charleville Stars and Secrets

Have you ever wondered why Pluto was relegated from the planetary system, what a meteorite is made of, why the sun is so hot and just what was the secret the Americans were hiding in Charleville in 1942? Discover the answers to these questions and so much more in Charleville. Historically famous for the Cobb and Co stagecoach, Charleville also provides insights in to the Vortex Gun rainmaking experiment, a secret WWII base and a world class astronomy observatory Cosmos Centre.

Day 1: Charleville
Arrive into Charleville where you will be met at the train station and given directions to your accommodation. Stay the next two nights at The Rocks Motel.
 
Day 2: Outback Stars and Secrets Tour
Your day starts at the Cosmos Observatory to view the Sun through an especially designed solar telescope. See sunspots and solar flares and learn more about the only star visible in the day the Sun. Hold a shooting star in your hand, learn why Pluto was kicked out of the planet club and be updated on the new discoveries in the solar system. After a light lunch at the Cosmos Centre you will be joined by your guide for a tour of the remains to the WW II Top Secret USA Airfield. This evening you will be collected to transfer to the Cosmos Observatory for a small private session to view the beauty of the outback night sky through powerful telescopes. View distant stars, planets and nebulae and learn about this hidden beauty too far away to be seen with the human eye.
