Andamooka Sets its Sights on the Stars

With little light pollution, the South Australian outback town of Andamooka is one of the best places in the world to see the stars and enjoy the night sky.

But these views could be made even better, with a proper observatory and viewing platform, which local resident and Opal Prospector Conan Fahey is looking to construct in the community.

Conan currently runs the Andamooka Observatory Bookshop as a way of raising money for the project, and joined Flow FM on today's Country Viewpoint to share the story.

A Go Fund Me campaign has also been set up for the Andamooka Observatory, visit au.gofundme.com/outbackstardeck to show your support.

To find out more about the project, visit andamookaobservatory.com.au or their Facebook page.
