Astronomy Talk: Understanding our Universe

Join us at the Ashburton Art Gallery and Museum for a lunchtime talk (BYO lunch) from the wonderful Alistair Perkins of the Ashburton Astronomy Group.

This is also your last chance to see our TÅ«hura Tuarangi: Aotearoa in Space exhibition, a special interactive show touring from Otago Museum.
