Goodness Festival Program & Astrofest Launch

August 3, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Launch AstroFest + Goodness 2017

This event will showcase the agenda for the highly anticipated festival and will commence the opening of the Astrofest Astrophotography exhibition.

The 2017 Astrofest Astrophotography Exhibition is presented at Western Australia’s biggest annual astronomy festival in Perth, as well as being on display as part of the Mount Magnet astro-rocks festival and the Museum of Geraldton’s travelling exhibition program.

Now in its eighth year, Astrofest celebrates and showcases Western Australian astrophotographers and astro-imagers. The 2017 exhibition showcases the superb accomplishments of twenty three talented Western Australian astro-imagers to record stunning astronomical landscape images in locations throughout Western Australia and beyond. Deep space objects are shown in extraordinary detail, using telescope based imaging combined with the power of sophisticated image processing.

The exhibition’s major sponsors are the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research and Lotterywest. The exhibition has been brought to Geraldton through the support of the Western Australian Museum, Scinapse and Inspiring Australia.
