Fireballs in the Sky!

Meteor

Discover meteoroids, meteors and meteorites!

At this free exhibition learn about the exciting Fireballs in the Sky science research project and find out how you can get involved in tracking meteors as well as see some real life meteorites!

Knowing where a meteorite came from, and what it is made of, will help us to address some of the biggest questions in planetary science: how our planetary system came into being, and how dust and gas produced a planet capable of supporting life – our Earth.

The Desert Fireball Network (DFN) is a network of digital cameras in the outback desert of Australia which capture photographs of the night sky.

The exhibition runs Wednesday 8 April to Sunday 3 May during regular opening hours.

Men and Mo’s in Tea Tree Gully

Men, moustaches and Tea Tree Gully have a long history together.  Throughout Movember, Tea Tree Gully Library will be hosting a display of photographs and trivia facts to pay tribute to the moustache’s cultural relevance throughout time.

For 150 years the moustache has played a significant part in the development of the City. With glory days in the nineteenth century and a revival in the 1970s, the mo has adorned the upper lips of many men in the community…and we have the photos to prove it.

Where's YOUR moustache?

Where’s YOUR moustache?

In fact shaving with stone razors dates back to Neolithic times – the oldest documented image of a man with a moustache is a Scythian horseman from 300 B.C.

The Local History photo collection has been well scrutinised to unearth a handsome selection of images for a photographic moustache feast of hair quality, colour, style, length and creativity.

The exhibition is a free event and donation tins will be provided if you wish to support men’s health charities in Movember.
