Aboriginal Astronomy at the Karijini Experience

Alan Duffy

Just an amazing experience heading up to the beautiful Pilbara region of West Australia to speak about aboriginal astronomy. I was part of an amazing lineup of speakers and events for the Karijini Experience, featuring everything from indigenous basket weaving techniques to Opera in the Gorge by the incomparable Deborah Cheetham. The special event was designed to encourage tourists to explore the gorgeous Karijini National Park and learn more Indigenous Australians. I was proud to be part of it explaining the night sky from the perspective of modern astrophysics, Greek constellations and Aboriginal astronomy. I also got to teach some astronomy sitting in the bush with a local school (creating a solar system ruler amongst other fun chats about the planets visible that night).
