Our trip to Narrabri - Australia Telescope National Facility

Russ travelled out to Narrabri on the Thursday night to bring the girls and I home. He made us promise not to go to the Telescope with out him. We saved it for the Friday.

It was really interesting. There are 5 small telescopes on railway track that they manouver around. That way they get the capicity of a much larger telescope.

This photo is taken up close to the telescopes but I could only fit 4 in the photo.



All five are in this one......



It was a hot, dry day with lots of flies. The girls didn't find it as interesting as we adults did. Here they are in a little bit of shade with Russell.



This Goanna was sunning himself near the road as we drove out.

I love the telescopes too. We don't live too far from each other - are you going to Bris for the Craft Show this week? I went today.
