Short burst activities to whet your astronomical appetite... 

Your Speaker

Fred Watson is Australia’s first Astronomer-at-Large. Recognised internationally for helping to pioneer the use of fibre optics in astronomy during the 1980s, Fred is best known today for his radio and TV broadcasts, books, and other ventures, which have earned him many awards. He even has an asteroid named after him (5691 Fredwatson), but says that if it hits the Earth, it won’t be his fault.
