About

A STELLAR ODYSSEY THROUGH THE WONDERS OF THE SOUTHERN NIGHT SKY

Filmed on location amidst the stunning vistas of the wild Kimberley region of WA, A Stargazer’s Guide to the Cosmos takes us on a remarkable journey of discovery through the wonders of the Southern night sky, with charismatic outback astronomer, Greg Quicke (aka ‘Space Gandalf’) as our guide.

Greg takes his skills, quirks and passion into orbit, as he sets out to share his lifetime of astronomical experience. The ex-pearl diver, cattleman, microbiologist and truck driver calls on his own galaxy of life experiences to reveal the secrets of our solar system, drawing remarkable connections between the everyday world we take for granted and the night sky above us.

Greg reveals an odyssey of stellar spectacles: from how one tiny quirk of our planet’s orbit makes the life-giving cycle of the seasons possible, to helping spot the International Space Station with the naked eye. Using simple tools, Greg uses his profoundly practical astronomy to help us experience a series of powerful ‘penny drop’ moments, as we forge our own lasting connection with the night sky.
