ORM Talks: Astronomy in the central west

By No Comments

Join local astronomers and space photographers, Niall and Rodney to hear all about astronomy in the central west.

ORM Talks: “Astronomy in the central west” with Niall McNeil and Rodney Watters

Friday 18 June 2021

Light refreshments provided from 5.30pm,   with the presentation starting at 6pm. 

Book here: https://ormtalksastronomy.eventbrite.com.au 

Our place in the universe is very small. From our blue planet Earth, we can peer into the night sky and see the cosmos, bringing to life its beauty with the aid of modern telescopes, cameras and image processing software. The central west is an ideal place to do astronomy, being blessed with superb skies and low levels of light pollution. For amateur astronomers like Niall MacNeill and Rodney Watters, there are few better places to observe and photograph the heavens.

Niall & Rodney will share the beautiful sights they have photographed over several years from the central west. Expanding outwards from the Earth and starting with our closest neighbor, the Moon, they will take us on a journey through our solar system. Looking at inner rocky planets to the gas giants and then beyond to the ice giants, we will also look at objects such as nebulae and star clusters within our galaxy, then finally, at immense distances, a fantastic array of galaxies millions of light-years away.

EARTH Art Exhibition

By No Comments

The EARTH Art Exhibition explores the CCC artists experience and engagement with their surroundings. The landscape we live in, here in the central west of NSW informs our every day, through each phase of the moon, each turning of the earth. We have what is rare in Australia, here in Orange we have the four seasons. Seasons changing and challenging us, like the fires of 2019, the ecological crisis of the earth and the worldwide economic crisis of covid, this environment is experienced and imagined by our artists and expressed in their art.
In paintings inspired by landscape, colour and texture, photographs that capture a moment of time, digital art combining landscape and imagination, weavings using local or found materials, pottery created in the textures of the landscape, glass works glistening with the colours of the seasons.
We are a group based in country Australia, yet connected to everyone here on earth, technology does that. Strangely Covid has brought everyone on earth a little closer together. Because right now we are all going through the same thing: covid, climate change, economic crisis and a sense of ecological crisis, all of our own making.
The CCC bunch love the adventure of living in Orange, the drenching colours of autumn, the gentleness of Spring after winter’s monochromatic beauty, the bounty that our earth produces and as a bonus we get a free trip around the Sun, every year.
